I love marzipan because it reminds me so much of growing up in Germany. I also love the
combination of pears, almond nuts and soy cream cheese.
This is really easy to make and soooooo good…

400g(14 ounces) soy cream cheese, cut in small pieces

3 firm pears, peeled, cured and thinly sliced
little extra Sweet Stevia for sprinkling
