Goat Cheese, Blackberry and Pear Bites

Two perfect bites per piece

4 oz. plain goat cheese, room temperature
2 Tbl. honey
¼ tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. lemon zest
2  Tbl. lemon juice
1 pear, peeled and chopped to size of peas
6 oz blackberries (or raspberries), fresh
2 packages of Phyllo dough cups, about 30

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Cream the goat cheese, honey, nutmeg, zest, juice, and pear in a small mixing bowl until well combined.  Spoon a single tablespoon sized amount of the mixture into each Phyllo cup.  Place one blackberry in the center of each filled cup.  Place the filled cups on a baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8 – 10 minutes, or until the mixture is slightly bubbly and the berries are just about to burst.  The pears will still be slightly crunchy for texture.
