when life gives you over ripe pears...

you can make this! how lucky was it that i has 2 pears about to go bad when i found the recipe for honey baked pears in a magazine?

it was even more fortunate that i already had everything (or a suitable substitute) that i would need to make it!

1 tsp lemon juice
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup warm water
1 cup crushed graham crackers (we used 1/2 cinnamon teddy grams and half ritz crackers)
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp butter
2 pears cut into 1 inch wide spears, core removed

mix the lemon juice water and honey in a little bowl
mix the crushed crackers sugar and melted butter in another little bowl
lay the pears in the baking dish
put half of the cracker mix on top, pour on the honey mixture, top with the rest of the crackers, bake for 15-20 minutes (until pears are tender when stuck with a fork) at 400 degrees.

as you can see we ate ours with vanilla ice cream.

i did finally leave the boy alone so he could enjoy his dessert.
