Maple Walnut Baked Pears


This year, our pear tree provided an abundant harvest! These pears are completely organic, we never sprayed the tree, and some are ugly but taste fantastic. I am using them all in recipes and eating them just as they are. These Baked Pears are a great accompaniment to your morning yogurt or after dinner for dessert.  For this recipe, I used 100% Vermont Maple syrup for the best flavor. Best of all, this recipe is 100% vegan (just use dairy-free ice cream or none at all.)
