Total time:



  • 1 Tbsp. Heinen's unsalted butter

  • 1 Tbsp. Heinen’s honey, plus more for serving

  2. Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the walnuts and toast until lightly browned, about 3 minutes.

  4. Combine the toasted walnuts, goat cheese and honey in a small bowl. Stir well. Add a scoop of the goat cheese mixture to the cored pears.
  5. Bake the pears on a lined baking sheet for 30 minutes. Drizzle with additional honey and cinnamon and serve.
