Difficulty:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients:
1 Quart(s) White grape juice
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Almond extract
6 Firm and almost ripened
pears
8 Ounce(s) Nonfat ricotta cheese
2 Tablespoon(s) Sugar
2 Tablespoon(s) Minced maraschino cherries
1/4 Cup(s) Toasted and slivered almonds
12 Amaretti cookies, optional
Directions:
Makes 6 servings This dessert is incredibly easy to prepare, yet
elegant enough to serve at a formal holiday dinner party. Be sure that
the pears aren't too ripe, as very soft pears tend to break apart
during the poaching process. In a large saucepan over medium-high
heat, combine grape juice, lemon zest and juice, and extract. Bring to
a boil. Peel pears, leaving stems intact. Using a melon bailer, core
pears from the blossom end. Place pears upright, in bubbling juices,
reduce heat, cover, and simmer slowly for 20 to 30 minutes, until
tender. In a mixing bowl combine ricotta, sugar, and cherries. Cover
and refrigerate until ready to use. When pears are done, remove from
poaching liquid with a slotted spoon. Using a spoon or tiny scoop,
fill core cavity of each pear with ricotta mixture and place on a
dessert plate. Sprinkle with almonds and serve with Italian amaretti
cookies, if desired. LACTO PER SERVING: 296 CAL (10% from fat), 6g
