Pear Salad
 
1 large  can pear halves, reserve juice
1   8oz package cream cheese, softened
1   8oz container cool whip, thawed
1/2 cup  finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup  maraschino cherries, quartered and drained well
2 Tbsp  maple syrup, can be imitation
 
dry pear halves off gently with paper towels. lay on tray and repeat the 
process until all pears are done. here's a tip-------but a good brand, 
they are in better shape than off brands. beat cream cheese with maple 
syrup until smooth with electric mixer. by hand, fold in nuts and chopped 
cherries. fold well. spoon filling into pear halves using all of the 
filling up. you just heap it up in the pears. place a well drained half 
of maraschino cherry cut side down on top of pear filling. chill several 
hours covered. serve on a bed of lettuce on pretty salad plates. 
 
footnote: if using for a dessert, zig-zag chocolate lines across dessert 
plate and place pear in center of plate.
