Pear Dessert Burritos

Serves 6
Time 30 min

Method

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil and set aside.

Place pears, apple cider, sugar, cloves, cinnamon stick and orange peel in a large saucepan and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer until pears are crisp-tender, 4 to 5 minutes.

With a slotted spoon, remove pears and set them aside.

Discard cinnamon stick, cloves and orange peel.

Bring reserved liquid to a boil and cook until thick and syrupy. Set aside.

Place about 2 tablespoons of the fromage blanc in the center of each tortilla and spread out into a 3-inch circle.

Top with 3 or 4 pear slices, then carefully roll up the burrito.

Arrange seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, or just until tortillas begin to brown.

Remove to serving plates and spoon some of the reserved syrup over the burritos.

Garnish with mint and serve immediately.
