A very mild and elegant dessert that is super dooper easy to make is this baked pear. I wanted to prepare something healthy and easy for a dinner party and this was a big hit. This recipe was taken from Everyday with Rachel Ray Magazine. The changes I made to this recipe was I used apricot spread instead of preserve and used some nuts for garnish. By using the preserve this dessert turned out very mild and was perfect for people who liked mild sweet and or healthy dessert. What I liked about this one is that it was easy to prepare for a crowd. Served with ice cream and walnuts you can make it an outstanding dessert.
