A deliciously easy recipe for roasted maple pears using butter, apple cider, and maple syrup. Top with cottage cheese or ice cream for an amazing healthier dessert!
I love the fruits in season this time of year. It's a toss up between apples and pears for me, they both bake beautifully and make a delicious healthier dessert. I haven't made these roasted maple pears in several years. I'm really not sure why, they are absolutely amazing. Roasted maple pears make the perfect lighter dessert to satisfy a sweet tooth.
I honestly forget about recipes because I'm constantly trying out new things. This is one of those family favorites that need to be a regular in our rotation. For a snack, they are great topped with full-fat cottage cheese and for dessert, go for a generous scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or frozen yogurt. Slap yo' mama good!!!
I like to use ripe Bosc pears and leave the skin on, but you can peel the pears if you prefer a softer texture. Bosc and Anjou pear varieties are the best for roasting since they hold their shape and texture when cooked.

These roasted pears look delicious. We have only a few this year on our pear tree and I've been looking for a great recipe, for when they are ripe. Loving the idea of not peeling them!!! Will definitely serve with a large scoop of ice cream. Thank you for a delicious recipe. Sammie.

I had a major kitchen fail making a pear tarte tatin last weekend .... this sounds like a safer and still oh-so-delicious way to prepare them!
