Tonight I made pears wrapped in puffed pastry.
First start by coring and pealing each pear.
Then poach in 4 cups of water, 2 cups of sugar, 1 cup of honey, 1/2 of a lemon, (yes whole) 1 vanilla bean, (seeded with hull reserved) 3 sticks of cinnamon, and 6 whole cloves, on medium heat until done.(about 30 minutes depending on ripeness)
Next thaw out one sheet of puff pastry and cut it into 1/2 inch strips.
Wrap the pear in the puff pastry…
…and bake at 400, for 15-20 minutes.
I think they are really pretty!
I also think they taste great!
