Almond Stuff Saffron Pears

This is the first of my new posts on using up what I have made.  I served these for thanksgiving.  The picture is of the last was a little unloved. 

This is so very simple. Once you have the saffron pears made. 

One jar of saffron pears (Mine had 8 pears in it)
1/2 lb almonds
1/2 lb powdered sugar

Place the a cup of almonds and a cup of powdered sugar in a food processor.  Grind until a thick paste.  Repeat until all of the almonds and sugar have been processed.  

Heat the oven to 350.

Remove the pears from the white wine-saffron liquid.  Place the liquid in a baking dish.  Take a spoonful of the almond paste and form into a ball.  Place the paste in the base of the pears (where you removed the seeds).  Place the filled pears in the baking dish.

Cook the pears for 15-20 mins and serve warm.
