Stuffed Pears

the other day I made a fig tart that was very very rich, it was so rich that you could not eat it or it would make your head hurt. I happened to have some pears that were getting over ripe so I took the filling of that fig tart chopped it up and added a 1/2 t anise, pinch smoked chipoltly powder, ground clove, salt, and nutmeg.

Cut the pears in half and scooped out the core with a melon baller. in the hole in each pear I stuffed in a tablespoon or so if the tart filling and then baked in a preheated 375 oven for 20 minutes.

serve with ice cream.

This looks delicious! What was in your fig tart filling?

I like this idea as I love fresh fruit desserts. I feel, I guess, not so guilty having the end of meal treats!
