     Carmelized Pears with Blue Cheese and Black Pepper

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None

Ingredients
1/3 C. water
2/3 C. sugar
3 ripe but firm pears, halved, seeds removed with a large melon baller
2/3 C. heavy cream
Table salt
1/4 t. whole black peppercorns, roughly crushed
3 oz. blue cheese
 

Instructions
Place the water in a 12 inch nonstick skillet and pour the sugar into the center of the pan, taking care not to let the crystals adhere to the sides of the pan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is fully dissolved and the mixture is bubbling wildly. Add the pears to the skillet, cut-side down, cover, reduce the heat to medium-high, and cook until the pears are nearly tender. Uncover, reduce the heat to medium, and cook until the sauce is golden brown and the cut sides of the pears are partly caramelized, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour the heavy cream around the pears and cook, shaking the pan back and forth, until the sauce is a smooth, deep caramel color and the cut sides of the pears are beautifully golden, 3 to 5 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat. Using tongs, carefully remove the pears from the pan and place cut-side up on a wire rack set over baking sheet. Cool slightly. Season the sauce left in the pan with salt to taste and the crushed black pepper, then pour it into a liquid measuring cup. Carefully (the pears will still be hot) stand each pear half upright on an individual plate and arrange a wedge of the blue cheese beside it. Drizzle the plate.
