2 ripe Asian pears

1/2 cup ricotta cheese

1/2 tablespoon honey (or more to taste)

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

Cinnamon for dusting

Slice pears in half. Using a spoon, remove the seeds and scoop a divot out the center of each pear half, making it large enough to hold at least a tablespoon of filling. In a small bowl, mix ricotta and honey until they are completely combined. Mix in cinnamon and ginger. Fill the center of each pear half with ricotta filling. Sprinkle the entire thing with a light dusting of cinnamon. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. If covered, they will keep a couple of hours (though don’t prepare them too far ahead of time or the pears will brown). Serve chilled.
