Baked Pears with Pecans and Maple Syrup
Serves
Makes 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons (2 ounces) Kerrygold Butter, extra for greasing
  • 4 large ripe pears
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 4 tablespoons finely chopped pecan nuts
  • 4 tablespoons maple or golden syrup, or honey
  • Vanilla ice cream, to serve


Procedure
Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Butter an ovenproof dish large enough to fit the pears in a single layer. Peel the pears and then cut each one in half and using a teaspoon scoop out the cores. Toss in the lemon juice to prevent them from going brown.

Place the butter in a bowl and beat in the pecan nuts then use the mixture to fill the cavities of the pear halves. Drizzle over the golden or maple syrup, or honey and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the pears are softened and the sauce at the bottom of the dish is bubbling.

To serve: arrange the baked pear halves on plates and spoon over any cooking sauces. Add a scoop of ice cream to each one.
