Sautéed Pears with BelGioioso Mascarpone

Sautéed Pears with BelGioioso Mascarpone
Pears develop a meltingly smooth texture when slowly sautéed in butter. The creamy mascarpone cheese matches the texture of the pears while the cognac-brown sugar glaze enhances the rich sweetness of the dish.
  1. 4 large fresh pears
  2. Juice of 1 lemon
  3. 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  4. 1/2 cup brown sugar
  5. 1/4 cup brandy or cognac
  6. 8 ounces BelGioioso Mascarpone cheese
  7. 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  1. Slice each pear into 6 wedges and toss in lemon juice to prevent browning. Melt butter in large pan over low heat. Add sliced pears and sauté for a few minutes until heated through.
  2. Add brown sugar and stir until melted and the pears are coated. Heat mixture until pears start to soften, then add brandy or cognac. Bring to a boil and poach pears until soft and heated through.
  3. Mix BelGioioso Mascarpone with maple syrup and serve pears warm or slightly cooled with a dollop of Mascarpone.
