      • Cook Time: 12 minutes
      • Ready in: 12 minutes
      • Serves: 6


      • Ingredients
      • 3 tablespoons Bonne Maman Apricot Preserves
      • 1 tablespoon water
      • 1¾ teaspoons cracked black peppercorns, divided
      • 2 Bartlett pears–halved, cored and each half cut into 6 equal slices (24 slices total)
      • 12 slices (6 ounces) prosciutto, halved lengthwise
      1. Directions:
      2. Preheat the oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the Bonne Maman Apricot Preserves (with large pieces of fruit removed), water and 1½ teaspoons black pepper. Add the pears and toss to coat.
      3. Remove the pear slices from the apricot mixture and wrap each with a slice of prosciutto. Place the prosciutto-wrapped pears on the parchment-lined baking sheet, seam side down, and sprinkle with the remaining ¼ teaspoon black pepper.
      4. Bake until the prosciutto is crisp and begins to brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and serve warm.
