Honey Wrapped Pears

Honey poached pears wrapped in flaky pastry.


  1. Preheat oven to 400º. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Peel the pears, then set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine water, sugar and honey; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Once the sugar has dissolved, add the pears, lemon juice, cinnamon sticks, cloves and vanilla. Simmer until the pears are fork tender, about 30 minutes.
  4. Once the pears are tender, remove from heat and allow to cool. Simmer the poaching liquid until reduced to ½ cup.
  5. Cut crescent roll dough into ½-inch strips and wrap around pears, starting at the base and working up to the top. Place pears on prepared baking sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with a drizzle of the reduction.
