Baked Honey Pecan Pears
Looking for a simple and elegant hors d’oeuvre to serve at your New Year’s Eve celebration? We think you’ll love these Baked Honey Pecan Pears! The recipe features a handful of ingredients from our December 26th – 31st Weekly Sale, including an amazing local cheese that is the product of a collaboration between the organic dairy farmers at Scholten Family Farms in Weybridge and Jasper Hill Farm in the Northeast Kingdom. Roasting the pears for a few minutes helps to soften them and bring out their natural sweetness and the entire recipe takes around 10 minutes from start to finish!
Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the pear slices evenly on the baking sheet. Brush with melted butter, then sprinkle evenly with the rosemary. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove the pears from the pan and allow to cool slightly. Transfer the slices to a serving platter and top with slices of cheese, a drizzle of honey, and a sprinkling of pecans.
