Cranberry-Pear Fruit Filling

Use firm pears for this filling or you will end up with a very mushy result.
  • 2 T. honey
  • 1 firm green pear, sectioned into 12 slices and then cut into thirds
  • 1 c. frozen cranberries
  • 1/3 c. pineapple or apple juice
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch

Heat the honey over medium heat in a nonstick skillet. Add the prepared fruit and mix to coat with the honey. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries begin to pop, about 4 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small dish, combine the fruit juice and cornstarch and mix until no lumps remain. Add the mixture to the hot skillet and mix until the liquid bubbles and thickens. Remove from the heat and place in a small baking dish, if it's to be used as a filling for a crisp or cobbler.
