Simple is sometimes best and this is surely an easy way to make a pear tart.
I had a couple of pears I needed to use up, a can of crescent rolls, and some leftover cream cheese icing. The end result was delicious, and I’m not even a big fan of pears! Of course, you could sub pears for apples, and probably peaches too. This came together in just a few minutes, which is always a plus around here!
I keep cinnamon sugar mixed together in my pantry, so I did not measure this. I just sprinkled it over the pears until they were covered. This recipe is so simple, you can’t really go wrong. Add or delete whatever you like! I also had some leftover cream cheese icing already in the fridge, but you could make a simple icing of confectioner’s sugar and milk too. It was a quick, yet tasty way to use up fruit that my kids begged me to buy, yet hadn’t eaten!
I think from now on, I’m going to keep an extra can or two of crescent rolls, so if I need an impromptu dessert…I’ll be ready!
- 1 can of crescent rolls
- 1 T. softened butter*
- 1-2 Pears, thinly sliced
- 2 T. brown sugar
- cinnamon sugar
- cream cheese icing (optional)
- chopped walnuts (optional)
- *I used Smart Balance in the tub
- Lightly spray a baking pan with cooking spray.
- Preheat oven to temperature on crescent rolls.
- Unroll crescent roll dough onto prepared pan, sealing perforations.
- Spread butter over dough.
- In a bowl, add pear slices and pour cinnamon sugar over them. Toss to coat.
- Spread pear slices evenly over dough.
- Sprinkle brown sugar over pears.
- Bake in oven until crescent dough is cooked through. (I followed baking time on can)
- Once done, drizzle with icing & sprinkle with nuts if desired.
