I like to reserve the sweet cinnamon syrup that collects at the bottom of the bowl with the walnut mixture and use that to drizzle on the warm baked pears. If you don't have enough syrupy goodness and can easily whip up more by taking a few tablespoons of maple syrup mixed well with about 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and then drizzle over the pears before serving or even on top of the yogurt or ice cream that you might serve it with. It's so good!
I actually only use 9 halves so I have an extra half left which I snack on while the pears are baking! Feel free to bake it too or enjoy snacking on it like me!
