Ingredients

4 medium Bosc pears, stemmed, cored, and cut into sixths

24 small fresh sage leaves

4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto*(See Cook's Notes), cut into thirds lengthwise

Directions

  1. Place a rack in upper third of the oven and heat to 450 degrees F. Place 1 sage leaf on a pear slice and secure by wrapping 1 piece prosciutto like a "belt" around the pear. Repeat to make 24 pieces.
  2. Evenly space pears on a baking sheet and place in oven to cook until prosciutto is crisp and pears are slightly softened, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately. Pears can be assembled up to 2 hours ahead. Store covered in the refrigerator until ready to cook.
  3. Pears can also be served uncooked, if desired.

Cook’s Note

Place prosciutto in freezer for 10 minutes to facilitate slicing.
