Easy as pie. Well, it’s not pie, but while Alyssa is slaving away making pies this month, I decided to make the easiest baked dessert there is.
Stand pears in a microwaveable bowl. Pierce each pear a few times with a sharp knife point. Drizzle a little maple syrup over each pear. Microwave on high for 8-10 minutes. Let pears cool a bit. Serve in small bowls. Drizzle some of the syrupy juice over each pear. Or for an extra layer of flavor (and calories), serve with vanilla ice cream!
