Honey. Pears. Flaky crust. How can you go wrong?
Despite my best efforts to cut back on our grocery runs, I keep finding myself heading back to the neighborhood store to pick up forgotten ingredients. Today, in frustration, I ended up buying five different cans of beans, in hopes that I would avoid another trip this week. Fingers crossed for that one.
Today’s trip was also to pick up the honey and pie crust I forgot to buy yesterday. Although I typically keep a good supply of both on hand, I found my honey all crystallized this morning and the pie crust gone. Whoops.
But the trip was totally worth it since it resulted in a batch of Easy Honeyed Pear Turnovers
for us to enjoy.
As far as desserts go, this is one that the whole family enjoys. My husband and daughter love the flaky, savory crust, while my son and I adore the sweet honey and pear filling. It’s a win-win for all of us.
When I make these, I prefer to use D’Anjou pears, which keep their shape even after cooking. So, when you bite in, you get a mouthful of soft, honey-coated pears. It’s divine.
Serve these babies as dessert with coffee for the adults. They go really well together.
