Scottish Recipes: Pears with Cream Cheese Balls
Here's how to add a spicy taste to pears with cream cheese and sauces.
Recipe Ingredients:4 ripe pears (or tinned half pears, drained)
8 oz (250g or one cup) cream cheese
3 oz flaked almonds, chopped and toasted
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon tomato ketchup or puree
1 tablespoon cream
Dash of Tabasco sauce
Dash Worcester sauce
Juice of a lemon
Salt and pepper
Preparation Method:Form the cream cheese into small balls and roll in the almonds; chill for one hour. If using fresh pears, peel, core and cut into half. Brush with lemon juice to prevent discolouration. Mix the mayonnaise, ketchup, cream, Tabasco, Worcester, salt and pepper. Pile the cheese balls into the pear halves and arrange on a bed of lettuce. Pour the spicy mayonnaise sauce over the pears and serve.
