    • 200g mixed dried fruit, chopped
    • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
    • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
    • 1 tsp brown sugar
    • 1 tsp water
    • 2 large pears, cored and halved
    • ¼ cup macadamia nuts, chopped
    • So Good Vanilla Bliss ice-cream (to serve)


    1. In a bowl, combine dried fruit, nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar and water.
    2. Put pear halves in a microwave dish, cover and cook on HIGH for 2-3 minutes, or until tender but firm.
    3. Place pear halves on a lightly-greased baking tray with the cored centre facing up. You may need to slice some pear off the bottom to ensure it remains level.
    4. Spoon fruit mixture into the centre of pears and top with chopped macadamia nuts.
    5. Bake in a moderate oven, 180°C, for 20 minutes, or until macadamia nuts are golden. Serve with So Good Vanilla frozen dessert.
