Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Slice each pear in half and use a tablespoon to scoop out the seeds. Place pears on a baking dish (you may need to slice a very small sliver off the back of the pear so it lays flat).
Combine pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries. Fill each pear cavity with this dried fruit and seed mixture.
Drizzle pears with 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup each. Combine cinnamon and ginger and sprinkle evenly over pears.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until pears are soft and tender.
Allow to cool slightly and serve with any desired toppings. Enjoy!
