No guilt? Sweet.

Sweet tooth, anyone?  Yeah, I’ve got one too.  Some nights are MUCH worse than others…

I love fruit, and I try to find new ways to enjoy it so I don’t get bored.  It beats stuffing your mouth with chocolate or ice cream.  At least that’s what I try to convince myself 🙂

If you’ve got a lot of ripe pears to use up (or apples, or both!) try this out.  It’s easy, delicious, and guilt-free!

Baked Pear Slices
4 medium pears, cored and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons brown sugar

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Spray a baking sheet (or two, if you need more room) with cooking spray.

In a bowl, mix cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar together.  Add the pears to the bowl and toss gently to coat. Lay them on baking sheet(s) and cook for about 30-40 minutes, or until browned.

Serves 2
