Pear Burritos

This recipe was inspired by something I found in the Whole Foods Market Cookbook, and was enhanced by the roasting techniques I've picked up in one of my all-time favorite cookbooks, The Roasted Vegetable (Andrea Chesman). I adapted the original recipe by cutting down on the size of each burrito, increasing the amount of pear syrup slightly, and adding a lovely cinnamon sugar coating.

It turns out the recipe is really as delicious as it sounds. The pears caramelize nicely in the hot oven, and they pair beautifully with the marscapone, which melts into a lovely sauce inside the tortilla packets. The pear syrup is a nice accompaniment for the crisped burritos, flavored perfectly (and subtley) by the cloves, cinnamon, and orange peel.
