20091228 Baked Pears with Amaretti
(SOURCE: BBC Easy Cook Magazine)
4 ripe pears
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
4 tbsp clear honey, plus extra to serve
8 amaretti biscuits
1. Cut each pear in half and place on a large baking tray. Use a teaspoon to scoop out the cores and make a dip in the center of each pear. Put about 1 heaped tsp of ricotta into each dip, then sprinkle over the cinnamon and drizzle with a little honey.
2. Heat the oven to 170 degree C, then roast the pears for 10 minutes. Tip the biscuits into a food bag and lightly crush them with a rolling pin. Remove the pears from the oven, then scatter the crumbs over each pear. Return to the oven for 10 minutes, or until the pears are soft and the topping is golden.
