To prep the pears, use a vegetable peeler to peel them, then slice them in half lengthwise. Use a teaspoon or melon baller to carefully scoop out the cores, the line that runs up to the stem, and the bud at the bottom of each pear.


Raw Bartlett pear(s)

4 medium, peeled, halved lengthwise, and cored

Fresh lemon juice

1 tbsp(s)

Ground cinnamon

¾ tsp(s)

Ground allspice


Plain fat free Greek yogurt

¼ cup(s)

Salted butter

1 tbsp(s)


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line large baking sheet with nonstick foil.
  2. Combine pears, lemon juice, cinnamon, and allspice in medium bowl; toss well.
  3. With sharp knife, cut each pear half lengthwise almost through to the base into 1/4-inch-thick slices, keeping the base intact. Carefully transfer the sliced pear halves to the baking sheet with a spatula. Gently press down on each half to fan the slices open slightly. Drizzle with butter. Bake until the pears are tender, 15–20 minutes.
  4. Top evenly with yogurt and serve at once.
  5. Serving size: 2 pear halves and 1 tablespoon yogurt
