PEARed with Love


I promised yesterday that I would share what I baked in my kitchen today...
and here they are...
"PEAR BREAKFAST COOKIES"
...and they are indeed yummy.


Prepare 2 fresh pears by peeling and dicing them.


Cream 1/2 c. butter, 1/2 c. brown sugar and 1/3 c. honey.


Add 1 egg and 1 tsp. vanilla and beat... until light and fluffy.

Add 1 c. sifted flour, 1 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt.
Continue to beat until well blended!

Stir in 1 c. rolled oats, the diced pears, 1/2 c. raisins and 1/2 c. chopped walnuts.

I know about the raw egg thing...but the batter is really good!
I can never resist tasting it.


I use a small sized ice cream scooper and drop the dough on to my lightly greased baking sheet. You can see I like to use stoneware.


Bake at 400 degrees for about 13 minutes.
Let them get lightly browned.

Now share them with a friend or loved one....or maybe even a stranger....

Enjoy!

Just think...if we got together and had some hot coffee...we could eat a slice of my apple pie and your pear cookies. What fun! Then we could jog around the block.
I often heard of the breakfast cookies, and saw recipes for some of them, but these look like ones I know I want to make. I like every single ingredient. Thank for sharing.
