Prepare to fill your kitchen with the glorious smell of sweet, juicy Roasted Pears tossed in fragrant maple syrup. As they bake in the oven, the pears caramelize and turn golden brown, toeing the line between savory and sweet. A pinch of pepper adds a kick of heat and toasted walnuts offer a satisfying crunch. Feel free to add additional spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, we’re looking at you) according to your tastes or swap out the walnuts for pecans. Not only is this recipe better than any scented candle, it’s also a festive holiday side dish (or side dish for any occasion!) that pairs well with roast pork, chicken or even Thanksgiving turkey

Bosc pears are the best choice because they boast a honey-like sweetness and hold their shape when baked. They’re generally easy to find, but you can use Anjou or Concorde if you need a substitute. Since pears peak in the colder months, this makes a stunning seasonal side to pair with any fall dinner or winter meal. We can picture it now—juicy roast pork served with sweet, golden-brown pears and any potato recipe (crispy, smashed or mashed, they’ll all work!) enjoyed on a crisp fall evening. Cozy vibes? Check!
