I really enjoy cooking and medieval history so I thought I would divulge into medieval cookery. This being my first attempt at medieval cooking I decided to start of with something easy. And boy did I find something super easy ... these pears are wonderful baked and so simple to make. Juicy, slightly soft but definitely still crunchy and their sweetness is enhanced by the sugar and cinnamon. Try it and enjoy this medieval treat!

History Bit: This recipe comes from 14th century France, Chiquart's "On Cookery". Baked pears were believed to have medicinal properties and were often given to the ill.
