Stud each pear quarter with a few whole cloves. Put into sterilized 1 quart glass jar with screw lid. Combine reserved pear syrup, sugar, and cinnamon drops in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add a few drops of red food coloring, if deeper red color is desired. Let cool for about ½ hour, and then pour over studded pear quarters and seal. Refrigerate. Serve as a condiment for ham or other meats, or as a topping for ice cream. This makes about 10 pear quarters and will keep in the refrigerator about 1 week. Note: You must make this addition to your holiday table at least one day ahead, in order to get the pears to absorb the clove and cinnamon flavor and the bright red color. This will be a dramatic addition to your meal! Enjoy!

In a large bowl, mix 4 ounces cream cheese and ¼ cup butter. Use an electric mixer to beat in 1 pound of confectioner's sugar, adding a little at a time. Roll out on waxed paper and form into a rectangle about ¼-inch to 3/8-inch thick. Spread evenly with 1 cup peanut butter. Roll into a log and trim ends. Roll in chopped pecans, if desired. Chill thoroughly before slicing into 3/8-inch slices. Place on a nice serving plate. Keep chilled until ready to serve, and put any remaining pieces of candy in the refrigerator to store. This is a delicious treat that is pretty, and almost everyone likes it! Enjoy!
