Baked Pears with Cranberries, Honey and WalnutsThe secret to choosing the right pear for baking is to go for the ones that are larger in volume, hold their shape after baking and taste, well, like a pear. My favorite choice for this dessert is Bosc or Anjou pears. Bosc are a bit more oblong in shape, juicy but still have a little crunch and best is they retain their flavor and shape when cooked. Anjou pears are great 'all purpose pears' and are available all year due to their versatility and long shelf life. When baked, they can withstand high temperatures and develop a sweet buttery, yet slightly firm flesh, that is perfect for this recipe.Baked Spiced ApplesThe best baking apples offer a balance of sweet and tart flavors and has a flesh that doesn't break down in the oven while baking. Apples are full of soluble fiber; the kind that can help lower blood cholesterol levels and assist in creating a healthy gut. Their peel or skin contains polyphenols which have antioxidant effects. They're also loaded with essential vitamins and minerals. Adding walnuts to this dessert provides additional healthy fats, protein and fiber. Oh and wait, your home will smell amazing as these bake in the oven.
