Fresh Pears and Frico

Yep.. it's definitely pear week around here, but they're in season so we must enjoy.  This is a simple 3 ingredient appetizer that's easy to make.

2 cups finely grated Parmesan
1 large Bartlett pear cut into a fine dice
2 tsp honey

On a silicone lined baking sheet or sheets place 2 Tbl cheese about 2 inches apart.  Flatten the cheese a bit to form circles about 3 inches.
Bake at 350F for 4 to 6 minutes until the edges of each round are barely browned.  Remove from the oven and cool slightly.
Using a thin bladed spatula, place each round over the underside of an upside down mini muffin pan (or you can use shot glasses). Press to mold it around and the blot any excess oil that may form with a paper towel.
Let the frico cups cool.  In the meantime, mix the honey with the diced pear.
Divide the pear among the cups and serve immediately.
Makes 10 to 12 frico cups
