Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350ºF.
Beat Neufchatel, 3/4 cup sugar, vanilla and 1/2 tsp. ginger in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended.
Toss pears with nuts, remaining sugar and ginger in medium bowl. Lightly spray 1 phyllo sheet with cooking spray; cover with 4 of the remaining phyllo sheets, lightly spraying each sheet with additional cooking spray before covering with next sheet. Cut into 6 (4-inch) squares.
Press 1 stack into each of 6 muffin pan cups. Repeat with remaining phyllo sheets. Spoon Neufchatel mixture into phyllo cups; top with pear mixture.
Bake 20 to 25 min. or until filling is puffed around edges and centers are almost set. Cool 5 min. before removing strudels from pan to wire racks; cool 10 min. before serving.

Look for pears with a fragrant aroma and coloring characteristic of their variety. Skins should be free from cuts and bruises. A ripe pear is one that feels slightly firm, but gives to gentle pressure at the stem end.
