Caramelized Pears with Ricotta and Black Modena Pearls_denigris_recipes

Let’s start with the crumble!​
Pre-heat the oven at 356°F.​
In a bowl, place the butter, flour, sugar, unpeeled almonds, thyme and black pepper. Mix well and place the crumble on a baking tray with parchment paper. Cook in the oven for about 15 minutes.​
In another bowl, add ricotta cheese, powdered sugar, lemon zest and vanilla bean. Blend all the ingredients well until creamy. ​
Wash and cut the pears in half, remove the core and cook in hot water with sugar and lemon juice until soft. In a pan, add brown sugar and the pears (with the peel upwards) and let caramelize. ​
Place the pears in a plate, add the ricotta filling and decorate with De Nigris Black Modena Pearls and thyme.
