These roasted maple spiced pears are wonderful to have on a chilly autumn day. The whole house will smell amazing, and you can feel good about serving it to your family!
The red d'anjou pears have been so delicious and sweet this season! My boys are crazy for them, I can't keep them in the house! Every time I go to eat one, they are already gone. I made this recipe with a mix of red and green d'anjou pears, but next time I'll try it with all red because I think the colors will be really pretty. You could also make this recipe with apples, or a mix of apples and pears.
I arranged my pear slices in a lovely fan pattern before roasting. But guess what? I just ended up stirring them up before serving, so next time I won't bother. I'll just toss the pear slices and the sauce right in the pie plate, instead of taking the extra steps of glazing them in a separate bowl and arranging in a fan pattern before roasting.
Try it with my Homemade Coconut Vanilla Ice Cream!
Note: If you really want to gild the lily, you can make a double batch of the sauce and reserve half to pour over the ice cream and pears before serving.

I love adding a whole, unprocessed and healthy twist to classic recipes. My food is often grain-free, usually gluten-free, and always unprocessed.
This sounds amazing! I'm confused about that third ingredient, though. Is it two tablespoons or two cups of unfiltered apple cider?
Oops! Thanks for catching that typo, it's been there since autumn! It is two tablespoons, I have updated the recipe.
Thanks for the update!
