Baked Pear

Soooooo yummy, Soooooo easy... Perfect for those fall pears. A hit for all ages. What else can I say?
OH! right - the recipe... OK take some pears that are close to being ripe, cut in half, using a melon baller - scoop out the seeded part. place on glass baking dish cut side facing up. Now here is the easy part, say if you have 6-8 pears which then will give you 12-14 halves, Drizzle about 1/2 - 3/4 cup maple syrup all over them, coat the cut opened part with it. Then pour about 1 c of apple cider (or juice) into the bottom of pan. AND THEN....sprinkle cinnamon all over them. WHEW!!! Bake at 400* for about 20-30 minutes or until they are soft. Take out, let cool slightly (since they are sooo yummy warm) and use the syrup on the bottom of pan too. Optional (can be dangerous) Can serve with a scoop of vanilla coconut milk ice cream to really make everyone nuts.....
