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 Rivieraยฎ Pears for this baked pear recipe, but if you’re in the mood for red pears (like in the image background) check these out.
