Here is a simple and delicious recipe from Becky, a teacher friend of mine. I wondered about the combination of ingredients and was pleasantly surprised how good this is. Becky said that her sons do not even like pears, yet she has to make a double batch of this because they like it so much. It actually has a gourmet quality to it and would be pretty to make it in a colored dish for the holidays. I used a pie plate, but I think next time I will use a larger dish.
Unroll crescent roll pieces and place in a pinwheel fashion around the pie plate with the thin piece of the roll in the middle of the plate. Place cheese in the center of the plate and then fold up the pieces of the rolls to cover the cheese. Pinch the seams together, pour the whole can of sliced pears over the rolls and then sprinkle the top with the brown sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes until the cheese is starting to ooze out a little. Serve warm. Crackers are optional, however, we didn’t eat crackers with it.
