At my recent book signing event at Donald J Pliner in Beverly Hills, the Italian caterer, La Piu Bella Tavola treated us to delicious limonada cookies. This month they are sharing their secret recipe for the Easy Pear Appetizer for our Love Potions.
Easy Pear Appetizer
- 2 Pears
- 1 Container of Mascarpone Cheese (in dairy case)
- Cracked Pepper
- Whole Toasted Walnuts
Remove the core and pits from a pear. Slice pear into 1/4 inch slices, slicing through the entire pear. Whip mascarpone cheese with fork. Add a dollop of mascarpone cheese to the top of the pear slice. Sprinkle cracked pepper lightly on top of the cheese. Top with lightly toasted walnut. Enjoy!
