Cranberry-Port Poached Pears with White Chocolate Cream https://www.metro.ca/userfiles/image/recipes/poires-pochees-canneberges-porto-creme-chocolat-blanc-6050.jpg PT20M PT30M PT50M
In a large saucepan, combine sugar, cranberry juice and port. Add pears and cook over medium-high heat. Add star anise, lemon juice and zest, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook 10 to15 minutes or until pears are tender but still firm. Remove pears and cool in a bowl. Over medium heat, reduce poaching liquid by half into syrup. Cool syrup before spooning it over pears. Set aside. White chocolate cream: Melt white chocolate in 1/4 cup (60 mL) hot cream. Whip remaining cream until peaks form. Gently stir melted chocolate into whipped cream until blended. Refrigerate. Phyllo wafers: Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Brush each sheet of phyllo pastry with melted butter before laying another one on top of it. Cut into squares. Place squares on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown. To serve, place a pear in the centre of a dessert plate, spoon syrup over pear, add a generous dollop of white chocolate cream and a phyllo wafer.
