Most of us have had fried apples. This is a nice change of pace.

I love pears, so when I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it. They're just as good as fried apples. I really liked the crunch the pecans added. This is so good over ice cream, but I could eat 'em straight from the pan too! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 2
    pears (such as bartlett or bosc) cored and sliced
  • ·
    note: you don't have to peel the pears unless you want to.
  • 2-3 Tbsp
    chopped nuts (I use pecans, slivered almonds or walnuts)
  • 3 Tbsp
    butter
  • 1 tsp
    vegetable oil (or so)
  • 3 Tbsp
    or so sugar
  • 1 Tbsp
    or so cinnamon

How to Make Fried Pears

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix together sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat butter and oil in a medium skillet over medium heat (the oil helps to keep the butter from burning). Prepare the pears while heating the butter (this way they don't have time to turn dark). Add pears and saute until just tender.
  3. Sprinkle with the sugar cinnamon mixture (As little or as much as you like). Stir gently to coat all of the slices. Turn off the heat.
  4. Add nuts, stir gently to mix. Serve with whipped cream or over vanilla ice cream.
