Method

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Stir 3 tbsp (45 mL) of the honey with lemon juice and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each of cinnamon and ginger. Spread evenly in a greased 8-inch (2 L) square baking dish. Arrange the pears in two rows.

Step 3
Bake for 20 min. or until set and golden. To serve, cut into squares and use a thin flat spatula to lift each portion out of the pan and turn pear-side up. Sprinkle with almonds and drizzle with any syrup left in the baking dish.
