Pear Dessert: Ricotta Stuffed Asian Pears with Cinnamon Recipe
- 4 whole Asian pears ripe
- 1 cup ricotta cheese room temperature
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- Cinnamon for dusting
Slice pears in half. Using a spoon or melon baller, remove the seeds and scoop a divot out of the center of each pear half, making it large enough to hold at least 1 tablespoon of filling.
In a small bowl, mix ricotta and honey until they are completely combined. Stir in cinnamon and ginger.
Fill the center of each pear half with ricotta filling. Don’t be afraid to heap it on. This is good stuff, and it's not bad for you! Sprinkle each pear half with a light dusting of cinnamon.
Eat immediately. If covered, they will keep a couple of hours
