Cinnamon Sugar Baked Pears

More from lessons on couch surfing: Make dinner for your friends, they will appreciate it!

But I say, Desserts First! This dessert was actually made for me by one of the moms I babysit for. Undoubtedly, hers turned out prettier than mine but hey, we’re still learning here. This dessert is super simple and can’t really go wrong with pie crust and cinnamon, just sayin’.

First, peel the skin off the pears. Thanks Burns for helping out on this one!

Next, cut pie crust around the edges of the pear and wrap around. I sprayed the pan with non-stick spray.

Option: brush egg whites over top of pie crust and pear before baking. This will give the dessert that shiny look. I had no egg, so no dice this go around.

Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar overtop the pears.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15min or until golden brown.
