As the weather gets colder it is nice to have a warm healthy treat.  With all the beautiful pears in season I thought I would make a roasted pear dish.  This recipe can be served for breakfast or as a dessert.  It will make 4-6 servings and can be prepared in one large baking dish or several smaller dishes for individual servings.  I used Bosc pears but Anjou, Bartlett or Concord work well for roasting too.  Enjoy!
