Cinnamon Butterscotch Pears Chip Recipe

Have you ever had butterscotch pears before? Neither had I until recently. I was excited to try the pears the minute that I saw them in my box delivered from Melissa’s Produce.

The minute that my taste buds sunk into one of the Melissa’s Produce butterscotch pears, it was like tasting a pear for the first time. The skin was so light, and delicate. Plus, the fruit was not bitter like other pears.

Melissa’s imports the fruit directly from Korea. Also, they have them hand-wrapped to preserve their moisture. In addition, the pears were flawless without a single dent or blemish.

I immediately knew that I wanted to make something sweet with the butterscotch pears. At first, I was going to make a pie. But, then I looked in my cupboard that holds my kids lunch snacks, and noticed I was low on snacks. So, I thought that instead of packing the kids lunch with processed chips, I could make healthier chips with the pears.

A little of cinnamon and sugar, makes everything sweeter. I decided to make the kids cinnamon butterscotch pear chips for the lunch snack. Make the recipe was the easiest thing to do – ever!

I used a mandolin to thinly slice the pears. I then put them into a bowl. Mixed them with 1/4 cup of cinnamon, and a 1/4 cup of sugar. Next, I put them on a baking sheet. Cooked them at 200 degrees for two hours. In addition, I turned them 1/2 way through the cooking cycle.

After cooking, I let the pear chips cool on a wire rack.
