"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!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Drain pear halves of their nectar, pat dry w/paper towel & reserve nectar for another use as desired.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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).

What a unique pear recipe! I wasn't sure what course to serve this as! I was game, because my mom used to stuff prunes with cream cheese, and even as kids we gobbled them up! I found the saltiness of the olives a little strange with the pears, but quickly found it addictive. Easy and quick too, which is always a plus. Thanks for sharing....made for FYC tag game.
