Don't try to use a hot pear, pastry will slide off. A chilled pear works but add a lot of cooking time. These are very filling and very delicious!

How to Make Encrusted Poached Pear

Step-by-Step

  1. cool the pears to room temperature or the pastry will slide off. Can be cold from the refrigerator but will add a long time to baking.
  2. You can smother the pear in the thickened sauce if you like before the pastry but not necessary.
  3. Have the pastry thawed and spread out. Cut the sheets into strips 1`/2" to 3/4" wide
  4. Wrap the pear from the bottom up pressing on overlaps and seams a little to keep things in place.
  5. Place in a sprayed pan separated by at least 1/2" for the pastry to expand.
  6. Place in a preheated oven at 400'F. Pepperidge Farms said 15 minutes but mine took almost an hour with a chilled pear, I just had to keep an eye on them until the pastry expanded and browned.
