Cherry Pecan Baked Pears

pears, cooked

Want to know my favorite fall treat? These baked pears! I love that the filling is made with only dried fruit and nuts (no added sugar!), making these tasty treats both Paleo & Gluten-Free compliant. I'll use whatever combo I happen to have on hand- I've used figs, raisins, walnuts, almonds and more. I also switch up the use- dessert, breakfast or snack!

Prep Dish Tips:
1.) To make coring the pears a breeze, use a Zyliss apple corer. Simple.

2.) Cut a small slice off of the side/ base so the pears don't “rock”.
