Roasted Pears with Mascarpone


I shared a photo of these roasted pears with mascarpone on Instagram last week, and I promised that I'd give you guys the recipe...so here we go! This dessert is so easy to make and super delicious. Plus, since it's mainly fruit, I like to think of it as healthy (don't tell me if that's not true...I don't want to hear it!). I always make extra of the granola topping to snack on. It's so addicting, I usually end up eating it all that same day! Don't say I didn't warn you...

Baked pear recipe

You will need:
2 Anjou or Bartlett pears
2 Tbsp olive oil
¼ cup pecan halves, coarsely chopped
2 Tbsp brown sugar
¼ cup old-fashioned oats
½ cup mascarpone
3 tsp sugar

To make:
Preheat the oven to 375°.
Cut pears in half and scoop out the cores with a spoon. Place them cut side up on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Roast in the oven for 20-30 min, until soft.
Meanwhile, toast oats, brown sugar, nuts, and olive oil in a cast iron skillet over med-high, stirring often, until golden (10-15 min).
Whisk mascarpone and sugar together in a small bowl.
Spoon the mascarpone onto dessert plates, top with the hot pears, and sprinkle on a generous amount of the granola topping. YUM!

Yum! Baked pear recipe

Hope you enjoy this recipe! I got it from a friend of mine who got it from Bon Appetit. If you check out their recipes, both of them do the granola a little differently. You can totally play around with it and load yours up with whatever you want: pumpkin seeds, hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, coconut oil, etc. Have fun! And let me know if you try it.
