Cinnamon Honey Fruit Gratin

This comes from the supermarket IGA's booklet the Pleasures of Cheese. i've actually tried this and loved it. This makes for a good dessert, especially when you're thinking of doing something low fat, and healthy.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Divide fruit evenly among 4 ramekins or small gratin dishes.
  3. Cover with cheese slices. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  4. Heat in oven until cheese melts. Serve immediately (it says to serve with fancy cookies, but I didn't do that).
  5. Variation: to change the taste of cheese, use Gouda, Cheddar or Oka instead.
  6. Note: I used apples, bananas, pears and peaches. I didn't use any berries, although I wished I did. But you could since it requires any combination of fruits that you like.

What a unique dessert. I used apples and Gouda and microwaved the apples for 45 seconds to soften them before putting the recipe together. The result was very tasty and it was a shoe in with DH who greatly loves apple desserts. If you sometimes like to try something a bit less common don't be afraid to give this a try. :D

This was a nice and easy dessert. I used a combo of frozen berries that had been thawed. I think that fresh berries at their peak would be great in this. I liked the idea of a cheese topping but I think I might cook the fruit in a little honey and cornstarch before baking to thicken it a little. Nice combination of flavors! :-)
