Caramelized Pear Turnovers


Yield: 12


  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3 Pears, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2″ chunks
  • 6 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 14-ounce package refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting



Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add pears and sugar.  Cook, shaking pan, until sugar bubbles up into a golden caramel.  Add vanilla and salt.  Remove from heat.  Cool completely.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Unroll pie crust on a parchment-lined surface.  Whisk egg and cream together.  Use dough press to cut out 12 circles.  Place one circle on dough press – gently pressing pastry into the shallow well.  Spoon about 1 Tablespoon filling into half the well.  Brush perimeter of pastry with egg wash.  Close dough press – sealing turnover.  Repeat with remaining pastry and filling.  Arrange turnovers on parchment-lined baking sheet.  Brush with egg wash.  Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.  Cool and dust with confectioners’ sugar.
