Crust
1 1/2
cups Original Bisquick® mix
1/4
cup sugar
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
cup cold butter or margarine
1/3
cup cold water
Topping
4
tablespoons honey
3
ripe large pears (about 1 1/2 lb), peeled, chopped
1
cup sweetened dried cranberries
2
teaspoons grated orange peel
1
cinnamon stick (3 inch)
1
package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  1. Heat oven to 450°F. Grease 12-inch pizza pan with shortening or cooking spray.
  2. In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, sugar and ground cinnamon. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until butter is blended into dough. Stir in water with fork. Spread dough onto pizza pan. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, in deep 10-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the honey over medium-high heat until bubbly. Stir in pears, cranberries, orange peel and cinnamon stick. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until pears are soft. Cool. Remove cinnamon stick; discard.
  4. In small bowl, mix cream cheese with remaining 2 tablespoons honey. Spread mixture over crust, leaving 1/2-inch border around edges. Spoon pear mixture over cream cheese layer. Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving time.
