Baked Pear Parcels with Lemon Chamomile Sauce


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 1 hour
  • Ready Time : 1 hour, 15 min


2 s


  • 2 Bosc Pears (ripe but firm)
  • 3 tablespoon Walnuts
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. all purpose flour
  • For the crust
  • 4 ounces all purpose flour
  • 4 ounces butter
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Lemon Chamomile Sauce
  • 11/2 cups Water
  • 2 chamomile tea bags
  • 11/2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp. Malbec Jam or 3 tbsp. honey with 1 tbsp. red wine
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. lemon zest



1 Preheat oven to 375F. To make the crust, combine all ingredients (flour through vanilla) in a bowl. Using your finger tips, rub the butter into the flour. Do not knead. Rub the flour and butter till it forms a crumbly mixture.
2 Press the crumbs into a ball. Cover the dough ball in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
3 While the dough is in the fridge, work on the pears. Peel the pears. Make a thin slice on the bottom of the pears so that they can sit stably. Core the pears and remove the seeds.
4 Crush the walnuts lightly. Combine them with the brown sugar and flour. Fill the cored inside of the pear with the walnut-sugar mixture. Pack the mixture into the pear cavity.
5 When the dough is chilled, take it out of the fridge and divide it into two. Roll out each portion into a rough round.
6 Place a pear in the middle of one dough round. Lift the sides of the dough up and press together over the pear to form a parcel. This doesn’t have to be perfect.
7 Pinch off any excess dough. Patch up any empty spots (dip you finger tips in water to seal edges).
8 Brush the pear parcels with milk or egg wash. Bake in the over for 50-60 minutes or until the pear parcels are golden.
9 Cool 10-15 minutes before serving.
10 Serve with lemon chamomile sauce (recipe below), ice cream or whipped cream.

Lemon Chamomile Sauce


  1. Boil the water in a sauce pan. When the water comes to a boil, add the chamomile tea bags. Boil for 30 seconds. Turn off heat and let the tea steep for about 7 minutes. Remove tea bags.
  2. Turn the heat back on and add all the remaining ingredients to the tea. Simmer till the sauce has reduced to about 60% of its original volume.
  3. Serve with baked pear parcels.
