The sweet charm of pears: honey-baked Bartlett pears served with a fluffy Mascarpone cream, topped with pistachios and pumpkin pie spices.

Baked Pears


  • 3 Bartlett pears

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1/2 cup honey

  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese

  • 8 ounces heavy whipping cream

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 tablespoons pistachios

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spices


  1. Preheat the over to 350°F.

  2. Cut the pears in half and remove pits. Place in a baking dish. Place half teaspoon of butter in the center of each pear and generously drizzle with honey (or agave). Bake for 30-35 min.

  3. With a hand mixer whip the heavy cream up until soft peaks form. Add the vanilla and the mascarpone. With a wooden spoon slowly mix everything.

  4. When the pears are baked and browned, place one half on a serving plate. Add one tablespoon (or two!) of mascarpone cream in the center and top with the pistachios, the pumpkin spices and an additional drizzle of honey. Enjoy!
