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

  • 1cool 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.
  • 2You can smother the pear in the thickened sauce if you like before the pastry but not necessary.
  • 3Have the pastry thawed and spread out. Cut the sheets into strips 1`/2" to 3/4" wide
  • 4Wrap the pear from the bottom up pressing on overlaps and seams a little to keep things in place.
  • 5Place in a sprayed pan separated by at least 1/2" for the pastry to expand.
  • 6Place 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.
