Rasberry Pears


Years ago I attended an invite to a friends home, I can't even remember now what the occasion was. However I remember a dessert that I loved. It became a famous dish in my own family. I serve it often at big events, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. I have been making this dessert for the past 28 years now...it's that good!!! Now we can enjoy it more often, My Gardner Guy, has fresh raspberries growing each year in the garden. Raspberries, black berries and strawberries...yummy.

(all berries can be used as a topping on this dessert, I like the rasberries the best)

2 large cans of whole pear halves
2 8 oz package of cream cheese
1/2 cup or more of powered sugar (to your liking of taste)
1 bag of frozen rasberries
1/8 cup of corn starch
1/4 to 1/2 cup of white sugar
1/2 cup of finely chopped nuts (optional)
1/8 cups of finely finely grated white chocolate (optional)

First take your frozen rasberries and on a medium heat cook until it is thicken, adding corn starch and white sugar. Let it then cool, I often place in freezer while preparing the rest of the dish.
Now for looks a head of pretty leaf lettuce, to serve as a bed for the pears to lay on.
Open your cans of pears, drain and lay on lettuce bed.
Mix powered sugar and cream cheese together, use has a filling in the holes of the pears halves.
Now take you cooled rasberry topping and put a littl over the top of the pear and cream cheese.
Sprinkle the tops with a few nuts and white chocolate......

Enjoy,

Georgie
