How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Place slivered almonds in a shallow pan, and bake 4 to 5 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring after 2 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 375°.

Step 2

Peel pears, and cut 1 inch off stem end. Remove core from stem end, and scoop out about 2 Tbsp. pulp from top of each pear, using a small spoon, to form a cup. Cut about 1/4 inch from bottom of pears, forming a flat base. Place pears in an 11- x 7-inch baking dish.

Step 3

Combine honey and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Heat over medium low heat until warm. Stir in toasted almonds and cranberries.

Step 4

Spoon honey mixture into pears. Pour orange juice into baking dish.

Step 5

Bake, covered with aluminum foil, at 375° for 15 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 more minutes. Sprinkle each pear with 1 Tbsp. Oatmeal Streusel Topping.

Not sweet enough for anyone. Doesn't have a whole lot of taste. There are other baked pear recipes that are out there that are better.
