Servings - 4 servings


  • 2 large slightly under ripe pears
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tsp white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds


  • Heat the oven to 350 F.
  • Slice each pear in half. You want to choose firm baking pears or slightly under ripe large eating pears. (Note: Pears that are very ripe will bake into mush.)
  • Use a spoon to scoop out a bit of the center core of each pear.
  • In a small bowl, combine the warm melted butter, vanilla and granulated sugar. Stir until the ingredients are combined well.
  • Brush the butter mixture onto each pear half, reserving the remaining butter mixture for later.
  • Mix together the brown sugar with the cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over top of the pear halves.
  • In a bowl, add the rolled oats and toss with the chopped almonds.
  • Pour the remaining butter mixture in with the oats and almonds, and stir to combine them. The oats should be lightly coated. If not, add another dab of melted butter.
  • Fill the center of each pear half with the oat and almond mixture.
  • Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the top is browned and caramelized and the flesh has softened.
  • Serve with sprinkled cinnamon, whipped topping or fresh vanilla ice cream.
