This tasty but light finish to a holiday meal is swiped from
the Recipe Du Jour's
excellent newsletter (and slightly altered, more like I have made them in the past;
I'd forgotten about them).
Preheat oven to 350 F.
1 can (29 oz) pear halves
1 cinnamon stick
3 ground cloves
1 package (8 oz) reduced fat cream cheese or Neufchatel, softened
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
Drain pear halves and set aside. Place the juice in a saucepan and add the
cinnamon stick and
cloves. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer while
you prepare the rest of the dish.
Combine cream cheese and honey; beat until blended.
Fill pear halves with cream cheese mixture. Place in a shallow baking dish.
Strain juice onto pears, discarding the
cloves and cinnamon stick. Sprinkle
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Serves 6 to 8.
