Janie, your wish is my command
Recipe for pears stuffed with Boursin

Required Ingredients
1 Pear Preferably a William ( or other short fat pear, not the tall thin ones (1 per Person)
2 Boursin or other herb & Garlic soft cheese
3 about 100-200 mls (4-8 US Fl Oz) of hard cider
4 Tarragon (fresh is best, but dried if not available)
5 Single cream (pouring or Light cream)
6 a shallow ( 1 to 2 inch deep dish micro waveable

A few hours or for preference 24 hours before required, add the Tarragon to the cream in the fridge and leave to stand (label clearly as it tastes disgusting in Coffee)
Core the pears, leave the stem in place, then place the pears standing on their bases (cut a small slice off bottom of pear if necessary so that it will stand up in the dish) add the Cider, stretch Cling film (Saranwrap )over the dish and puncture it near the top to let steam to escape.
Place dish in Microwave and run on full power until pears are tender ( a skewer through the cling film into the fat part of the pear will reveal when without unwrapping) about 5 to 10 mins, depending on size of the pears.
Leave to stand (in fridge if you like) until cool Then using a teaspoon stuff the cavity with Boursin or the cheese until full. If prepared in advance stuff just before (or not more than a n hour or so) before serving, as the garlic permeates the pears too much.
Serve in individual dishes standing on base
Pour Tarragon Cream over at serving or let the Guests help themselves
