    This is a recipe for beautiful, sweet, and slightly tangy pears. They are delicious with just some whipped cream or ice cream and they are also perfect on tarts and cheesecakes.

    Serves: 4 

    • 4 pears - peeled, cored, and quartered
    • 1 cup honey, divided
    • 1 cup fig jam
    • 1/2 cup pomegranate molasses
    • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 cup thickened cream
    • 1/4 teaspoon almond essence

    Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Arrange the pear quarters on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle all but 1 tablespoon of the honey over the pears; set the reserved honey aside.
    2. Stir the fig jam, pomegranate molasses and cinnamon together in a small saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and keep at a simmer until ready to use.
    3. Bake the pears in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Reduce oven heat to 165 degrees C. Brush the fig glaze over the baked pears. Continue baking until firm on the outside, but tender inside, 25 to 35 minutes more. Allow to cool 5 minutes.
    4. While the pears cool, whip the cream, almond essence, and reserved honey together with a hand mixer in a large glass or metal mixing bowl until thick. Dollop the whipped cream mixture over the pears to serve.
