Swiss Stuffed Pears
|Pears||2 Small, pared and stems removed|
|Lemon juice||1 Teaspoon|
|Grated swiss cheese||2 Ounce|
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Cut each pear in half lengthwise; using a melon-baller or small spoon remove and discard seeds.
Scoop out chunks of pear to create a hollow in each pear half; reserve chunks.
Rub pear halves with lemon juice and set aside.
In a small bowl combine pear chunks, 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice, and cheese.
Spoon 1/4 of mixture into each pear half; place stuffed pears in 8-inch square nonstick baking pan.
Cover pan with foil and bake 20 to 25 minutes; uncover and bake until cheese is lightly browned, about 5 minutes longer.
