Pears with Goat Cheese and Preserves

Yield 8 servings
This simple dish depends on high-quality ingredients. Almost any flavor of preserves will work, though fig is divine. And while either Bartlett or Comice pears work with the flavors of the recipe, you'll be in for a special treat if you use Comice.


  • 4 medium Bartlett or Comice pears, peeled, cored, and cut in half lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup fig preserves
