Need a holiday dish that will dazzle your guests? Try these baked pears. They are stuffed with triple-cream brie and topped with candied pecans, dried cranberries, and a drizzle of honey. You can make these in the air fryer, so it is super easy and quick. If you make these for the holidays, it won’t take up precious oven space.

Ingredients


All ingredients from Trader Joe’s.
What you’ll need:
• 3 ripe pears
• Melted butter
• Cinnamon
• Brie
• Candied pecans
• Dried cranberries
• Honey
• Arugula

Directions

Preheat air fryer.

Wash and pat dry the pears. Slice each pear in half, taking care to leave the stem in tact on one side – it’s prettier with the stem! Using a small spoon, scoop out the seeds. Pat the insides dry with a clean paper towel.

Brush melted butter on the halved pears. Sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon, then place pears in air fryer basket. Set to 15 minutes at 400.

During the last 3 minutes of cooking time, slide out the air fryer basket and place a chunk of brie in the center of each pear. Return the air fryer basket to cook and allow the full 15 minutes to finish. Remove pears and place on a bed of arugula. Top with chopped candied pecans, dried cranberries, and a drizzle of honey.
Serve immediately.
