This Boozy Pear Dessert Is Secretly Healthy

One of the best ways to end the night is sipping on your go-to floral cocktail while eating your favorite dessert. Even though we love a good milk and cookies recipe, a digestif helps elevate the overall sweetness from that perfect final course. What if we told you, you can combine the best of both worlds into a healthy(ish) dessert? It looks hard, but it’s actually ridiculously easy. While this pear recipe calls for the typical ingredients of walnuts, cinnamon, honey and vanilla, we decided to add a little extra something special: rum! Grab your favorite bottle and preheat that oven, because your night just got even more awesome.

Ingredients:

— 2 pears

— 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

— 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

— 1/4 cup crushed pecans

— 1 1/2  teaspoon honey

— 2 teaspoon rum

—1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Cut the pears down the middle.

3. Using a small ice cream scoop or melon baller, scoop out the seeds and place on a greased baking sheet.

4. Place a handful of pecans in between plastic wrap and crush them with a mallet or heavier object.

5. In a bowl, mix rum, vanilla and 1 teaspoon of honey together until combined.

6. Sprinkle nutmeg, pecans and cinnamon onto the pears.

7. Drip the rum mixture over the pears.

8. Drizzle the remainder of honey on top.

9. Bake them in the oven for 30 minutes or until golden in color and soft.
