  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cut top quarter of pears off; create a well by scooping out the core, being careful not to puncture the bottom of the pear. Arrange pears in a shallow baking dish.
  3. Drizzle maple syrup over pears. Place 1 tablespoon brown sugar and 1 tablespoon butter in each pear; sprinkle with cinnamon.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until pears are easily pierced with a fork, 35 to 50 minutes. Serve with ice cream.

I used home grown Asian pears. Recommend less butter and partially skinning the pears if they have even a slightly tough skin, it will reduce the bitterness

I love pears, but didn't have large ones, so I used smaller ones and cut them in half. oh so yummy! They were perfect, and I ate mine before taking a picture, so had to take another. lol.

There are too many other good baked pear recipes. This one is not one of them. No wonder people change the recipe to their taste. The best thing about this recipe was the ice cream.
