They’re a jewel of a fruit and soooo sweet. I’m talking about
Seckel pears…the tiniest member of
the pear fruit family. I picked them up at my local Metropolitan Market.
They’re SO sweet, they’re called ‘sugar pears’. I love the
yummy shades of maroon and green!
They make a perfectly pretty dessert for your Thanksgiving table, especially dipped in
super simple vanilla bean caramel….
rolled in edible GOLD glitter…
and packaged in inexpensive cellophane bags,
tied with gold & white bakers’ twine.
You can make these glam little desserts in minutes and
place one at each setting at your Thanksgiving table. Tie on a name tag if you like!
Okay, to make the vanilla bean caramel, simply melt the store bought caramel per the
package directions and scrape in one vanilla bean! How easy is that!
Then quickly roll the plump pears in the edible glitter (Sur la Table) while the caramel is still hot!
To add a little earth & panache to the packaging,
I plucked real stems from our apple espaliers. So fun!
I also tied on some bling!
If you really want to go all out, tie the packaged pears onto a
tree limb and let the kids…
pluck their own dessert!
