Recipe Details:

1 tsp cinnamon
6 tbsp plus 1 tsp sugar
4 1/2-inch slices French bread
3 tbsp butter
2 ripe but firm Bartlett pears, peeled cored and thinly sliced
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
1 cup rasberries

In a bowl, mash together the raspberries and 1 tsp sugar using the back of a spoon (or you can puree in the blender for a smoother consistency). Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together cinnamon and remaining sugar. Toast bread on a grill pan or in toaster until golden. Spread toasts with 1 tbsp butter and sprinkle a light layer of the cinnamon mixture on top.

Toss pear slices with lemon juice. Melt remaining butter in a pan over medium-high heat. Add pear and cinnamon mixture and sautee for 3-4 minutes until well caramelized. Spread mascarpone on each toast and top with pears. Top with mashed raspberries and serve.
