Throughout the winter months, I enjoy baked fruit. First of all, I really enjoy a nice breakfast during the coldest of winter weather. Also, I think warmed fruit is a nice option and great alternative to a cold fruit platter. I like to serve cold fruit during the warmer months instead.
So, here is another basic recipe for baked fruit. This year, I made this recipe for baked pears on Christmas day for a breakfast side dish. It was very tasty. The recipe can be increased based on the number of guests expected at your meal.
Gather these ingredients: 2-4 pears-peeled and cored, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, 2 tablespoons margarine, and 1/4 cup brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking dish with cooking spray. Place the pear halves and sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg.
In a small bowl, mix the margarine and brown sugar together.Spread the mixture over the pears.
Bake for 20 minutes. Just before serving, add blackberries if desired. Serve warm.
