Yes, but need to be baked for a longer time.

This pear recipe is ideal for the chilly weather!
We have our apple crisps and coffee cakes, but this year, I’m all pears. A simple evening calls for a simple dessert, so I gathered my pears, honey, spices, and nuts and put together a recipe that tastes like it’s for special occasions but can be made any weeknight. With 10 minutes of prep and 30 minutes of baking, this is one of those easy recipes that makes a delicious dessert in less than an hour. The sooner it’s done, the sooner you can relax and enjoy your evening.
What are the flavors in this fall fruit dessert?
Sweet coconut sugar, cinnamon, and a little bit of vanilla flavors are the ultimate combination that can make any fruit recipe go from zero to one hundred really quick. And it’s no different when it comes to warm pears! Sweetened with honey, you can choose your favorite pears to make this recipe with.
What pears are best for baking?
Most popular are anjou pears or forelle pears. The anjou variety has a more lemon-lime tinge of flavor while forelle pears are commonly sweet and cinnamon-y. I would not recommend bartlett pears since they’re very soft and are best for eating fresh. The variety of pear you use is important since it can change the base flavors of the entire dish. Make sure that you’re using ripe pears.
What will you need for these Roasted Pears with Spiced Honey Syrup
Pears of course! I recommend a pear variety that isn’t too soft so that they bake well.
Honey to sweeten up and add a rich, smooth flavor this recipe.
Earl grey tea for the rich flavor it can add. The bergamot in earl grey tea adds a citrusy flavor that pairs so well with pears.
Coconut sugar adds sweetness to the cinnamon mixture you’ll be enjoying. It’s a great alternative to regular sugar.
Cornstarch to help thicken the syrup mixture.
Cinnamon because it’s the ultimate fall spice! It’s almost impossible to make a tasty fall dessert recipe without it!
Vanilla extract for a warm and familiar flavor balance.
Cashews and pecans! You’ll love the crunch that they add as the topping.
