  • 2 ounces fresh goat cheese (about 1/2 cup)
  • 4 firm-ripe pears, such as Bartlett or Bosc, halved lengthwise
  • Honey, for drizzling
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds (from 1/2 large pomegranate)


  1. Stir goat cheese in a small bowl until smooth. Core pear halves with a melon baller or small spoon and fill each cavity with 1 tablespoon cheese. (Pears can then be sliced again into smaller wedges, if desired.) Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds.
