Pears and cheese were made for each other, and this quick-and-easy dish proves that. Roasting the pears with a little butter and honey, then topping them with a rich and creamy cheese like Brillat-Savarin or Explorateur makes a decadent finish to a fall or winter meal.


  • 4 pears such as Anjou or Bosc, about lb (750 g) total weight


Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Cut the pears in half lengthwise, leaving the stem intact on one half, then core them, making a small round cavity (a melon baller works well). Brush the bottom of a baking dish with half of the melted butter and place the pears in it, cut side down.
