Baked Pear in Lavender-Maple Syrup

October 4, 2011 |  by  |  Blog, Fall, Food for the Soul

Yum! I wanted to share this for a while with you and I finally have time today.

I am discovering lavender! It actually goes well with a lot of food! We bought a gallon of maple sirup during our last trip to the local maple sirup farm, which is also a great cooking ingredient! Besides this delicious dish, I also have some printables for you!

Baked Pears:

1. Preheat oven to 400 F.

2. Peel the pears and cut in half.

3. Place pears in cast iron pan.

4. Pour maple sirup over the pears.

5. Add the butter.

6. Bake each side for 12 minutes.

7. Remove from oven, add 1 tblsp of cream cheese and pour lavender glaze on top.

Lavender Glaze:

1. In small pot heat sugar, lemon juice and water.

2. Pour in lavender.

3. Slowly cook until sugar is melted, stir constantly.
