Cinnamon Mascarpone Baked Pears

Betsy Reader


For a light dessert.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This lovely, light pear dessert is simple, yet so refined. Baked in a little butter and brown sugar the pears alone are delish. Then they're topped with a dollop of a cinnamon mascarpone cheese mixture that's smooth and creamy. When done you could sprinkle these with a little more cinnamon and chopped nuts if you'd like.
