Pear Burritos

Ingredients

  • 4 medium ripe pears, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 (2-inch) slice of orange peel
  • 8 ounces fromage blanc, like triple creme or mascarpone
  • 6 (10-inch) flour tortillas (I used whole wheat tortillas, but to make this uber decadent, try making it with crepes)
  • fresh mint leaves to garnish

Directions

  1. Place the pears, apple cider, sugar, cloves, cinnamon stick and orange peel in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the pears are crisp-tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. With a slotted spoon, remove the pears and set them aside. Discard the cinnamon stick, cloves and orange peel. Bring the reserved liquid to a boil and cook until the mixture reduces by half and is thick and syrupy.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  4. Place about 1/8 cup of the fromage blanc in the center of each tortilla and, with a flat-edged knife or spatula, spread the cheese into a 3-inch circle. Top with 3 or 4 pear slices then carefully roll up the burrito. Place seam side down on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes, or just until the tortillas begin to brown. Remove to serving plates and spoon some of the reduced sauce over the burritos. Garnish with the mint leaves.
