POACHED SKULL AND CROSSBONES
Yield: 4 Servings
1 can Pear halves; drained
Strawberry or raspberry fruit or “all fruit” preserves
Preheat the oven to 350* F. Cut bananas in half lengthwise and place 2 halves, or bones, crisscrossed in X shapes in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet. Place your pear-half skulls on top of the banana X’s, curved side up. With a blunt knife, make 2 small slits in the pears for the eyes. Insert a raisin in each slit. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and carefully transfer to individual serving plates. Drip some fruit sauce blood around your creepy crossbones.
