Spiced Baked Pears

2 Large Pears, quartered
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
1 tablespoon crushed ginger
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamon
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 cup caster sugar 
30g unsalted butter, melted
30g raw almonds, chopped

Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix well.  Line a baking dish with aluminum foil and place pear mixture in dish. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 35 minutes  The spice mixture should be caramelised and have toffee like bits - delicious!  Serve with a little whipped cream if desired.

Sorry, no photo for this one, but believe me it is appetizing.  It's the first time I've made it and I plan to make it again next Sunday or Monday for my refeed!
