Who doesn’t love prosciutto, pears, and goat cheese? With the holiday season in full swing I know I’ve been tempted to eat goat cheese by the wheel so I was overjoyed when I came across this tasty appetizer that allows me to consume it (in much more reasonable portions). To make Prosciutto Pear Cups you need 1 teaspoon lemon juice, 1 Bartlett pear, goat cheese, and 1 package of prosciutto.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut the prosciutto into small squares. Use a mini cupcake tin to create the prosciutto cups by lining each cup with the squares. I used about 2-3 layers per cup. Bake until the cups are golden brown (approximately 20 minutes).
Cut the pear into cubes and toss it in the lemon juice, set aside. Remove the cups from the oven and allow them to cool, use a paper towel to blot out any excess grease from inside the cups. Place a small dollop of goat cheese on the bottom of the cup and top with the pear cubes. Serve this to your guests!
