If you're a lover of fruit baskets and unique desserts, then you might enjoy Stuffed Pears Milanese.
Wash pears. Cut in half lengthwise; scoop out cores. Chop cherries very fine. Grind almonds until almost mealy; add extract. Blend very thoroughly all ingredients except sherry.
Fill pear halves with this mixture. Place in baking dish. Pour sherry over pears; bake in a medium oven for about 15 minutes, or until pears are done but not too soft.
Serve either very hot or cooled, as preferred. Serves 6 to 8.
