Ingredients

  • 1 Bartlett or Anjou pear

Directions

  • Use flower-shaped cookie cutter to cut each slice of bread. If bread sticks to cutter, gently push the petals out with your fingers.
  • Wash the pear and dry it with a paper towel. Cut the pear in half, and remove the core. Cut each pear half into four slices, then cut each slice into five pieces. Use the center three pieces of each slice. You can save the end pieces for a snack, later.
  • Spread 1 teaspoon of peanut butter, in a circle, in the center of each of the flowers.
  • Place 3 pieces of pear on the peanut butter on each flower. Arrange the pears so the skin is facing out and the white centers are touching in the middle.
  • Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon of strawberry preserves in the center of each flower and over the pears.
