My daughter teaches Home Economics and Latin at a Private School. She recently had to do a History Banquet where her Home Ec Class had to prepare and serve for the First Grade Class and the theme was a Greek theme because it is a Classical School. We were struggling with what to come up with for everything. After coming up with Lentil Soup, Hummis and a Chicken Wild Rice Casserole, I finally helped her with this. I invented this Baked Pear. Not only is it good but healthy. No sugar added. We were trying to stay authentic so we used no real sugar. It's really very good. We had lots of raves and we served it with real cream at the bottom. Not whipping cream because they had no way to whip it but you could whip yours because we do have whipped cream today.

How to Make Greek Baked Pears

Step-by-Step

  • 1Before you start, either spray your pan with cooking spray or foil it so the honey won't stick to the pan where it's hard to clean later. Set your oven at 325 degrees.
    Core your pears making a hole in the middle where you can have room to add ingredients. Using a pastry brush, paint all of the pears with lemon juice. This keeps the pears from turning dark and it also gives them an added boost of flavor. Cut a tiny piece from botton so the pears do not slide all over the pan and this will help them stay stable. Do not cut much as you do not want to loose much of your pear. Also, do not cut much from the middle when you core as you do not want to lose much of your pear then as well. Remember, a pear isn't that big. So, now that you have your pear painted with lemon and on the prepared pan, you are ready to begin stuffing. Chop your figs if they are not already chopped and put some in each cavity. Take about one teaspoon of oats and top on the pear and then slice a very thin slice of butter and lay on each top of the oats. After that you need to make up your honey mixture. You take a bowl and pour a liberal amount of honey into it and add lots of cinnamon to taste. The honey should look dark brown. Taste it at this point. It will no longer taste like honey but a beuatiful cinnamon mixture. Taste until you love the taste. Take and drizzle liberally on each pear. This and the figs are your sweetener for this. Then sprinkle almonds on to the honey mixture so they will stick. After this, put it in the oven for around 30 minutes or until pears are fork tender. Serve with fresh cream. It will taste amazing and it is all naturally sweet. Just make sure that you have used foil or coated the pan with cooking spray because honey really sticks when cooked. This tasted very amazing. We had so many compliments.
