Roasted Pears with Brie & Pistachios

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons honey mustard
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 ripe pears, preferably Bosc
  • 2 ounces Brie cheese, cut into 4 slices
  • 4 teaspoons chopped pistachios, toasted

PREPARATION

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat an 8-inch-square (or similar-size) metal baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk mustard, oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  3. Cut pears in half lengthwise, hollow out the core and slice a small piece off the other side so they will lie flat when served. Brush all over with the mustard glaze and place cored-side down in the prepared pan.
  4. Bake the pears for 30 minutes, basting halfway through with the glaze. Gently turn them over, baste again and place a piece of Brie in the hollow of each pear. Bake until the pears are tender and the Brie is slightly softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle each pear half with 1 teaspoon pistachios.
