This surprisingly simple dish is a must for any home. Our Chef created this baked pear recipe that you can make as a delicious alternative dessert to impress your guests. Plus, it’s a great way to share the incredibly sweet and juicy pears that fall brings us.
We used our Royal Riviera® Pears for this baked pear recipe, but if you’re in the mood for red pears (like in the image background) check these out.
