    Very easy, beautifully creamy (I used low fat cream cheese and cream which were fine) and totally scrumptious. Elegant and tasty enough to serve to guests and quick enough to make during the week. The only change I made was to halve the sugar (I used brown sugar) in the filling in step 5. Then I sprinkled some sugar and cinnamon on top of the pears. We enjoyed this with cream at room temperature. Thanks for sharing another great recipe, Evelyn!


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
