Crumbly Baked Pears

A warming Baked pear pudding recipe that’s low in fat and fast to make


4 Large ripe pears
100g ricotta cheese
½ tsp cinnamon
4 tbsp clear honey, plus extra to serve
8 crisp amaretti biscuits (Available from Woollies)


Cut each pear in half, then place on a large baking tray. Use a teaspoon to scoop out the cores and make a dip in the centre of each pear. If your pears are firm, you may need to use a sharp knife to do this. Dollop about 1 heaped tsp ricotta into each dip, then sprinkle over the cinnamon and drizzle with a little honey.

Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5, then roast the pears for 10 mins. Tip the biscuits into a food bag and use a rolling pin to lightly crush them. Remove the pears from the oven, then scatter the crumbs over each pear. Return to the oven for another 10 mins or until the pears are soft and the biscuit golden brown. Serve drizzled with honey.
