Baked Pears with Brown Sugar, Gorgonzola and Prosciutto
3 Bosc pears, ripe but firm
½ cup Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
½ cup cream cheese
2 tablespoons brown sugar
3 slices prosciutto
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mash together the cheeses and sugar with a fork. Peel pears and slice vertically. Remove cores with a spoon. Slice a small amount off of the round bottom of each pear so that they rest on a baking sheet without wobbling.
Scoop approximately two tablespoons of the cheese mixture into each pear halve. Cut the prosciutto slices in half horizontally and drape a piece over each of the pears, making sure to cover the cheese.
Bake for 16 minutes, or until each pear is fork tender.
