Spiced Pear Turnovers

This is a glorious little dessert. Simple. Quick. Just the way I like it! 

What You'll Need:
Yield: 4 turnovers

1 medium-sized pear, ripe
1 can refrigerated biscuits
4 T brown sugar
3 T granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 T powdered sugar
8 T butter

First step, set your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place 1 T butter in each ramekin (or 4 T butter on the bottom of a glass 8x8 or 9x9 pan) and place the dish(es) in the oven.

Peel, core, and slice your pear into little chunks.

 Slam that lovely can of biscuits against the counter until you hear that heavenly 'pop'.

Mix together brown sugar, granulated sugar, and cinnamon.

**NOTE: At this moment, I blacked out and completely forgot to take pictures of the next several steps. It's not rocket science, however, and you will do just fine reading the instructions. Take heart! 

Roll out one biscuit on your counter top until it's about the size of a small dinner plate.

Put 1 T sugar mixture in the center of the biscuit. Place 1/4 pear dices over that, and top with 1 T more of the sugar mix.

Roll out another biscuit slightly smaller than the first. Lay it over the pear mix, and fold the bottom biscuit up over the top biscuits edge, forming a seal. Then give it a good closing by running a fork along the edges. (see below)

Repeat with the rest of the turnovers. When they're all ready, place them in the warm ramekins or in the warm dish with the butter melted on the bottom. (Several of the ramekins I used tonight had high sides, so I gave them a little spritz of PAM just in case!)

Top each turnover with 1 T butter, and bake for about 10 minutes. I think. Honestly, I didn't keep track.

Bake them until they're done.


They should look a little something like...


Top them with 1 T sugar mix and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

Serve them with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

I had planned on taking pictures of the inside... but uhhhhh...

By the time I remembered, this was all that remained:
