Baked Spiced Pears


  • 4 ounces Cappello's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough 

  • 4 D’Anjou, Bosc, or Bartlett pears

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted 

  • 2 tablespoons honey 

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon  

  • 2 tablespoons walnuts, chopped  

  • 1 tablespoon dried cranberries 

  • Optional Toppings:

  • whipped coconut cream

  • dairy-free ice cream 



  • Preheat oven to 350 F. 

  • In a small mixing bowl add 4 ounces of cookie dough, walnuts, and cranberries. Stir to combine. Divide and shape dough into roughly 1-inch balls. Set aside.

  • Slice pears in half and use a teaspoon to create a well by scooping out the core. Arrange pears in a shallow baking dish. (Note: you can slice a small piece off the bottom of the pears to help them sit straight).  

  • Brushed melted coconut oil over pears. Drizzle honey over the tops and sprinkle with cinnamon. Fill the well of each pear with a cookie dough ball. Cover baking dish with foil. 

  • Bake until pears are easily pierced with a fork and topping is golden, 35-40 minutes. Serve with whipped coconut cream or ice cream.
