Roasted Pears with Gorgonzola (Gluten-Free)

I never get tired of turning sweet fruit into a savory dessert. Anjou and Bosc pears are easy to find this time of year. Their denser flesh makes them perfect for baking and roasting. They have a mild sweetness that allows the cheese to come through; blue cheese also works well. If you cut a small sliver off the back of the pears, they rest perfectly in the baking dish.

Roasted Pears with Gorgonzola (Gluten-Free)Ingredients:
3 ripe pears, Anjou or Bosc
Juice from 2 lemons, plus 1 teaspoon zest for garnishing
⅓ cup crumbled gorgonzola
¼ cup dried cranberries
1 cup apple cider
½ cup light brown sugar
¼ cup olive oil

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350°F.

Peel pears and slice lengthwise in half. Remove the core and seed with a melon baller or spoon. Place pears in a baking dish and toss with lemon juice then arrange core-side up.

In a small bowl, combine cheese and cranberries. Mold a spoonful of the mixture into each pear.

In the same bowl, whisk together apple cider and brown sugar until dissolved. Pour about ⅔ liquid over pears and bake for 30 minutes, basting occasionally.

Remove from the oven and serve warm, garnishing with a sprinkle of lemon zest if desired.

What do you do with the rest of the liquid and where is the olive oil used?

Thank you i have the colonoscopy on Tuesday and am dreading the prep more than anything lol. I think what ever the outcome I will try a gluten free diet to see if it helps with the symptoms. I've read so many stories of people going gluten free and symptoms such as depression, anxiety...

A positive on any one celiac test should lead to an endoscopy/biopsies being done by a gastroenterologist. You should keep eating gluten until the endoscopy is done.

Hi LexieA, It's perfectly ok to grieve or feel down because of a diagnosis of celiac disease. Feelings are not obligated to perform on command. But, over time you can adjust to the new diet reality and even like it. Getting used to eating mostly whole foods and more natural foods is a goo...

Hertzya, Congrats to you for sticking with your service in spite of celiac disease. That seems like it would be hard to do, And thanks for your service to our country!

Thank you all
