If you have to use pears that are hard and unripe, they will need to cook about 15 minutes longer. I usually put less than ripe pears in a pan with about 1/2″ of hot water in the bottom and bake them for 15-20 minutes before adding the cheese and honey and carrying on as per recipe.
This dish is great made with low fat cream cheese too.
Eat all sweet, sugary treats in moderation. A little bit of what you fancy does you good, but don’t overdo it!
