1.) Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a 9″ x 13″ casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Layer the pear halves in the casserole dish, side by side in a single layer, skin side down.
2.) Mix together the melted butter and the canola oil. Slowly pour over the pears so all the pears are coated with butter and oil.
3.) Sprinkle the nutmeg and the cinnamon over the pears. Then crumble the brown sugar over top. Put the pears in the oven for about 35-40 minutes or until the pears can be easily pierced with a fork.
4.) Serve and enjoy!
