Baked Pears

One of my family’s favorite desserts are baked pears.  Mom makes them stuffed with hazelnuts, with a syrupy coating that I think involves apple juice and maple syrup.  As a student, I had none of these three ingredients, but thought a baked pear would hit the spot.  My version isn’t quite as good as Mom’s, but it uses more store cupboard ingredients.

Store Cupboard Baked Pears:

1 pear, halved and with the seeds and woody bit removed

1 TBSP butter
1 TBSP brown sugar
2 TBSP oats

To serve:
milk, cream, or ice cream, depending on what level of dessert you’re going for

After removing the woody parts from the pear, you’ll be left with a little hollow in each half.  Fill these hollows with the oat mixture.  Pile on as much more oat mixture as is structurally possible.  Put the halves of pear in a baking dish, and bake at about 300 F for about 20 minutes, or until the pear gets soft and the topping gets golden.
