Stuffed pears

Just look at these beauties they really are pretty.

Sometimes i just don't feel like cake, sounds crazy i know but I did say sometimes... ok very rarely. But it doesn't mean i don't want something sweet, I just want something different... But what????

Stuffed pears, that's what!

I am so chuffed. I came up with this recipe all by myself and these pears look just as good in real life.

You can make these as a special dessert for you and your other...

Before you spread the cheese on each slice of pear, make sure the cheese has been in the fridge and the pears have completely cool down.

When you purchase your pears, make sure that the bottom is as close to flat as possible. If you find the pears starting to fall to one side as you assemble them, just put a tooth pick inside.

Stuffed pears

Ingredients

2 large pears

Filling ingredients

1/4 teaspoon coconut oil

25g goat feta

1/4 cup shelled pistachio, smashed

1/2 cup Philadelphia cream cheese

1/2 cup ricotta

1&1/2 tablespoons finely chopped mint

2 teaspoons honey

1/2 - 1 teaspoon rose water (optional)

2 tablespoons of orange zest

Method

Preheat the oven to 200C

Coat the pears with coconut oil and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

Bake for 16-18 minutes or until pears have a beautiful golden colour.

While pears are baking place all the filling ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine.

Place in the fridge.

Once pears are ready to come out, let them cool down before cutting them into four slices.

Divide the filling into half and spread cheese filling on each slice then stack them one on top of the other and repeat with the second pear.

You can keep in the fridge but bring out before serving. Best to eat at room temperature.

I love hearing from you! Let me know how it went and feel free to spread the word/passion/love, the more the merrier!


With love and gratitude
