5 tablespoons mild honey
½ teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
3 firm-ripe Anjou or Bosc pears, peeled if desired
cup pine nuts, lightly toasted


fresh thyme sprigs


1. Stir together ricotta, 2 tablespoons honey, thyme, 1 tablespoon basil, 1 tablespoon mint, and a pinch of salt.

2. Halve pears lengthwise and scoop out core with a melon-ball cutter or spoon. Leaving stem end intact, cut each pear half lengthwise into -inch-thick slices and gently press against a work surface to create a fan shape.
