Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add ½ tablespoon of butter and 2 tablespoons of sliced almonds. Cook, stirring constantly until toasted, approximately 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat to cool.

Step 2

Peel and dice 1 Bosc pear into ¼” cubes and place into a mixing bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of honey and stir to combine.

Step 3

Transfer pear to a fine mesh strainer placed over a bowl and set in the refrigerator to drain the liquid, approximately 10 minutes.

Step 4

In a small bowl, mix the sliced almonds with 3 tablespoons of mascarpone.

Step 5

Using a 2.5” ring mold, spread a layer of the mascarpone mixture on the bottom, about ½ inch high.

Note: If you don’t have a ring mold, you can cut the top and bottom off of an emptied and cleaned canned good.

Step 6

Remove the diced pear mixture from the refrigerator and tightly pack the mixture inside the ring mold on top of the almond mascarpone mixture.

Step 7

Once formed, slowly remove your ring mold.

Step 8

Garnish with finely grated pecorino cheese and freshly ground black pepper. Serve with your favorite crostini and enjoy.
