Roasted Pear and Apple Stacks

Serves 4

Bosc pears stack beautifully in this so-simple-to-make fall dessert flavored with apple cider. Just a few ingredients bring out great flavor.


2 Bosc pears, cut in half lengthwise, cored and thinly sliced

2 Cortland apples, cut in half, cored and thinly sliced

2 tablespoons melted butter

1/4 cup warm honey 

2 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted 

Lettuce and arugula leaves for garnish


1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lay the pear and apple slices in single rows on the parchment. Brush the slices with half of the butter.

2. Roast the slices for about 5–8 minutes, turning once and brushing the other side with butter. Remove the slices just when the edges begin to brown. Allow to cool to being warm (not too hot, not too cold).

3. Stack alternating slices of apple and pear on each of 4 dessert dishes. Drizzle each dish with the honey, and sprinkle with the almonds. Garnish with lettuce and arugala leaves.
