Had my doubts about the pairing of a mild pear flavour with prosciutto. Should have gone with my hunch. Baked prosciutto becomes overwhelmingly strong (disgusting) and is a complete turn-off combined with pear (or any ingredient, for that matter). It gets one star only because the rating system doesn't allow for minus scores.

A personal favorite and great crowd pleaser! I agree with the comment that your prosciutto shouldn't be too thin, otherwise it is nearly impossible to shape into the muffin cups. A twist on the recipe...I like to drizzle balsamic syrup on the pears just before serving-yum!

My boyfriend loved this appetizer! I'll definitely make this again and may sprinkle a tad bit of blue cheese next time.

Be sure your proscuitto is not too thin or it's impossible to separate, cut or arrange in muffin cups. My first try ended up being crushed and sprinkled on top of the pears like bacon bits. Tasty, but not anything like the picture.

Thanks Null...I was looking for something else to put inside and this sounds great.
