So, I have been craving sweets and trying new things. I am not much of a baker, but I love to cook and I love the combination of sweet and salty. Having recently entered the world of Medjool dates as a result of my paleo living, I made up this simple little recipe and cooked it tonight. These baked pears will make a great appetizer for a party, or an easy dessert for your family!
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
2 Pears, sliced in rounds from the top to the bottom
3 Medjool Dates, pitted
4 oz. Gorgonzola Cheese
Preheat the oven to 375.
Grease a 9x12 pan with the coconut oil and set it aside.
In a bowl, combine the dates and the gorgonzola cheese, mashing them together into a thick paste.
Put about a half teaspoon of the date mixture on top of each pear slice.
Bake for 25 minutes or until the pears and the topping are a golden brown. Serve warm.
Knowledge is half the battle!
