Daydreaming about a perfect Christmassy sweet yet fragrant breakfast? Or a quick and macro-friendly snack that will set you in that proper Christmassy mood in December? If so, then I might have something you may truly like - a perfectly sweet yet nutritious brekkie for cinnamon lovers.

The recipe is super simple and doesn't require any fancy, hard-to-get equipment - all you need is a few ingredients, an oven, 15 minutes and a proper Christmassy mood.

I would advise to serve these pears freshly baked and enjoy a warm meal/snack with a sweet twist. However, you can pre-bake them, have them cold and enjoy as a lunch break treat to cheer you up on gloomy, cold winter days. I truly hope you'll fall in love with it as much as I have.

    Is cheese curd the same as cottage cheese? Sorry I may have a good lot of the English Blood but I don't speak it  It sounds yummy but I don't know about using cottage cheese so I am wondering if it is something else, like maybe actual cheese curds that are more of a Canadian thing and bit hard to find here in the states.

      Curd cheese is similar to cream cheese but with a lower fat content and it, like cottage cheese, has had a lactic starter added. This gives it a light acidity and a light flavour, colour and texture.

    Never seen anything called curd cheese here in FL… anything else it could be called or a substitute? Recipe sounds great!!!
