It’s been so cold and foggy here, and all I want to do is bake.
California doesn’t always get cozy weather. I want to take advantage of the weather while I can. I would have loved to stay home and cuddle and drink tea or warm apple cider or even a pumpkin spice latte but it’s peppermint time. I can’t help but really hate peppermint. It’s different when it’s December and I have my one peppermint hot chocolate when looking at Christmas lights. But it’s November I want to experience fall and fall flavors not winter.
And before you ask yes there’s a difference.
Am I still upset that pears aren’t recognized more as a fall fruit?
Yes! But that is neither here, nor pear.
So I’ll be making my fall recipes until Thanksgiving’s Day.
Baked pears were a fall favorite in my house.
- 2 pears, halved and cored
- 4 tbsp chopped walnuts
- 2 tsp honey
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Arrange the pear halves in a baking dish. Fill the core with the chopped walnuts. Drizzle with the honey and sprinkle with the cinnamon.
Bake for 30 minutes or until pears are tender.
