    Filling

    • 1 1/2 cups grated swiss cheese
    • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
    • 1/2 cup goat cheese, crumbled
    • 1/2 cup pecans, toasted and chopped

    Directions:

    1. 1
      1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200 °C).

      2. Peel pears and cut in half. Remove seeds, leaving stems intact. Using a teaspoon scrape out the inside of the pear and set aside. Brush the pear with lemon juice and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, cut side down.
    3. 3
      3. Remove the pastry from the package and place on a lightly floured surface. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll the pastry to a 10 x 12” (25 X 30 cm) rectangle. Cut pastry into 6 equal rectangles. Cover each pear with a piece of pastry, cutting away excess pastry using a sharp knife. Pierce several holes in pastry using a fork.
