READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by evelynathens

I made these for New Year's Eve appetizers and they were wonderful. Lovely blend of flavours and textures. Gone in no time at all - best make up a double batch.

These are such a great, easy, elegant idea! We enjoyed them, but next time I will use a more tart type of pear, then add another tablespoon of sugar to balance the flavors. I also added some lemon zest just to brighten the aromas. Thanks so much!
