These ginger baked pears are an easy, hands-off dessert that's naturally Paleo, gluten-free, and AIP-compliant.
Today I am sharing a quick yet elegant dessert idea. These Ginger Baked Pears are great for those that don't like anything too sweet and for those of you who don't want to make anything too involved. Yet it looks, tastes, and smells tantalizing. I like this one for those holiday parties/get-togethers that might not necessarily be the main event. Like a Christmas Eve dinner, New Year's Day dinner, or if you are hosting family and friends over for several days and want something easy.
Because this one is also naturally gluten-free and Paleo it is perfect for serving or bringing to event where you are going to be mingling with people on a standard, non-Paleo diet. It's not one of those “weird” Paleo things (as what some non-Paleo folks might think about our baked goods), it's just a pear with some yummy toppings on it.
This quick but elegant dessert recipe is perfect for the holidays or any special occasion. It is Paleo, gluten-free, and vegetarian, but great for anyone.
- 2 Pears, sliced in half and the seeds removed

- Place the pears on the baking sheet with the cut sides up. Brush the tops with the melted butter.
- Bake for 15 minutes and then drizzle the honey and sprinkle the spices over each pear. Bake for another 10 minutes.
