"Like myself, my Mom favored tasty recipes that were easy-fixes & mostly made ahead. She made sure this one found its way to our Irish feasts often. I don't see how it can get any easier than a no-cook, 3-ingredient recipe that you can make a day in advance of intent to serve. This past Thanksgiving I made these stuffed pears as a surprise add to our 3-family menu & they were a hit across 3 generations. Enjoy!"

Drain pear halves of their nectar, pat dry w/paper towel & reserve nectar for another use as desired.
Chop pimento stuffed green olives into a fine dice until a 1/3 cup volume has been collected. Stir into the softened cream cheese until mixed well.
Spoon a relatively equal amount of the cream cheese & olive mixture into ea pear half, mounding generously until all the mixture has been used. Cover w/plastic wrap & refrigerate until ready to serve (Can be made 1 day ahead).
NOTE: My research found there is an average of 9 pear halves in a 29-oz can
