How to Make Swiss - Caramel Pears with Cheese Covering

Step-by-Step

  • 1Caramelize the sugar with a few drops of lemon juice in a wide chrome steel frying pan, then remove the pan from the heat.
  • 2Pour the water on to the sugar. Let the caramel simmer gently until it has dissolved.
  • 3Peel the pears, cut them in half and remove the core, then pour a little lemon juice over the pears so that they do not turn brown.
  • 4Place the pears and sticks of vanilla into the caramel syrup and simmer the fruit until it is almost soft.
  • 5Cut the cheese into thin slices.
  • 6Remove the pears from the syrup and place them on to a baking tray covered with baking paper.
  • 7Fill with the cranberry compote and place the cheese slices on top and bake the pears in on oven at 180 ° C for 6-8 minutes.
  • 8Place the baked pears into individual dishes, pour over the caramel syrup and sprinkle over a few leaves of thyme.
  • 9Tip: For another wonderful version, prepare the dessert with apples and fill the fruit with blackberry jam instead of cranberry compote.
