I love fruit a lot, and like everything else that I eat all the time, I get tired of it also. Pears are one of those fruit that I don’t mind eating when it is super hard or just perfect soft. I had bought the pears and they sat in my fridge for two weeks (which means I bought them super-duper hard) and wanted a new way to eat them so they didn’t go to waste. Here is my so yummy Snack Attack – Pillsbury Pear Roll-Ups.
So my really favorite way to eat a pear is when it is super hard. The main reason I like it best that way is because it takes forever to eat it. I always quarter my fruit and take the seeds or pits out and eat it with my fingers. This is more for my mental-self, the whole hand to mouth and feeling satiated thing. And with the hard pear, you don’t fill up so fast and it takes longer to eat it which makes it more satisfying.
This was just the easiest thing in the world. I used the awesome vegan Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, which you can read about here in my Accidentally Vegan Foods List, which I love and now can eat without guilt. In a microwave safe bowl add the butter, maple syrup and cinnamon. Microwave for 30 seconds and mix. Wash and quarter the pears. Add the first four quarters to bowl and mix. Pop open the crescent rolls and lay on sprayed baking sheet.
Lay the pears on the roll dough and fold over ends, repeat above. Bake for 30-40 minutes depending on how soft you want your pears. Next time to cut down on cooking time, because you really don’t need 30 minutes, sheesh, I will microwave the pears like you would potatoes and then do it.
These were so good, I could have eaten the whole thing in one sitting. I had to put them in containers and in the fridge so I wouldn’t keep going back for more. I actually took one of the quarters cold on the way to the gym and it was amazing. Can’t go wrong with these for breakfast, snack or dessert!
