Make It Monday - Baking with Asian Pears
I hope your day is going great and thanks for stopping by the farmhouse.
I am sharing a new recipe today using Asian Pears. A fruit that I was not familiar with until we moved to the farmhouse.
We realized, last fall, that we had two pear trees in our "garden area". Back then it was an overgrown semi-fenced in area that we had a vision for. We were able to make that vision come true this year with a wonderful abundant garden.
Last year, we barely had any pears on the trees.
This year, the fruit is so plentiful, we are giving them away!
Never knowing what an Asian Pear was, of course I took to Pinterest.
Finding Asian Pear recipes was not hard at all.
I wanted to find one that I already had the other ingredients for.
None of the ones I was pinning would work out but I did have a recipe in mind that I used with a mixed berry cobbler so I tried that!
If you are not famliar with this type of pear, they are similiar to apples as they are crisp and very juicy.
Bartlett pears might the ones you are familiar with and they are great but those pears are better as they get softer. Not with these babies! You want them big! You want them firm!
After picking a handful...I got to work...
Topped the warm cobbler with vanilla ice cream and we were in pear heaven!
It did not take long before there was none left.
I will be making this recipe over and over again this fall. I am sure of that!
- 1 Can of Biscuits (like the PIllsbury Grand biscuits)
- 3 Asian Pears (other pears might work but they might get to soft and mushy)
- Melted Butter
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 2 TBLS Cinnamon/Sugar mixture
- 2 TBLS Corn Starch
Heat the over to 350 degrees
Grease a pie plate
Peel and dice your pears - throw into a bowl
Coat the pears with the 1/4 cup of sugar
Put your covered pears into the pie plate
Cut your biscuits in quarters and throw into a bowl with melted butter.
Then place your biscuit quarters on top of the pears.
Cover the biscuits with the cinnamon/sugar mixture and bake!
Baking time will vary - you want to make sure the biscuits are done all the way and they will get nice and brown on top due to the cinnamon.
After - cool for 5 mins and serve with vanilla ice cream!
Hoping to share some more Asian Pear recipes soon!
