Baked Pears with Whipped Mascarpone

This is a fancy but easy recipe that’s sure to impress everyone – we love this as a weeknight treat or the last bite at a dinner party. 

Type: Dessert
Servings: 2-4 servings
Kitchen Time: 35-40 minutes

Great with:

Vanilla Ice Cream


Shopping List: 

  • K&M Magic Pie Spice (1/4 cup)

  • 2 Pears (large)

  • K&M Whipped Cinnamon Mascarpone

  • K&M Classic Granola

Pantry Items: 

  • Wine (White or Red)


  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Halve pears and remove the core. We leave the skins on but feel free to peel them if you prefer.
  3. Place 1/3 cup wine (orange juice or water would also work here!) and 1/4 cup magic pie spice in a baking dish and stir until combined. Add pears, cut side down and wrap dish tightly in foil.
  4. Bake pears for 25-45 minutes (or longer if your pears aren’t very ripe) until they are tender to a fork and have released some of their juices (the riper the pear, the less time required).
  5. Remove foil and bake another 5 minutes to reduce the sauce if needed. It should be thick and syrupy.
  6. Serve pears with a scoop of the whipped cinnamon mascarpone and a drizzle of sauce from the pan. Top with granola!

    Chef’s Tip: This happens to be a great fall dessert for our gluten-free friends.
