Asian Pear Clafouti with a Citrus-Ginger Glaze

Darlene Buerger


Sometimes simple flavors are best. I love any kind of fruit and cheese so I decided to combine my favorites in this easy to make dessert. I used puff pastry but a regular pie crust works great. The sweet Asian pears and pungent goat cheese are a perfect combination in this light custard clafouti but any fruit and cheese combination you enjoy will work. It is best served warm, which is great since I usually can’t wait to try it. Enjoy!
