In This Recipe
Directions
  1. On a silicone lined baking sheet or sheets place 2 tablespoons cheese about 2 inches apart. Flatten the cheese a bit to form circles about 3 inches.
  2. Bake at 350F for 4 to 6 minutes until the edges of each round are barely browned. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
  3. Using a thin bladed spatula place each round over the underside of an upside down mini muffin pan. (or you can use shot glasses) Press to mold it around and then blot any excess oil that may form with a paper towel.
  4. Let the frico cups cool. In the meantime mix the honey with the diced pear.
  5. Divide the diced pear among the cups and serve immediately!

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining. My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
