4 medium ripe pears, peeled if desired
¾ cup desired dried fruit, such as dried cranberries, cherries, apricots or raisins
3 tablespoons chopped walnuts, toasted
3 tablespoons maple syrup
¾ cup pear nectar or apple juice
3 cups cooked multigrain cereal
Cut pears into halves, leaving stems intact on 4 of the halves. Remove cores. Arrange pears, cut sides up, in a 3-quart baking dish. Top pears with desired dried fruit and walnuts. Drizzle pears with maple syrup. Add the pear nectar or apple juice to the baking dish.
Bake, uncovered, in a 350-degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until pears are tender, basting occasionally with the cooking liquid. Serve warm pear halves with hot cereal. Drizzle with any remaining cooking liquid.
