It is almost pear time. Our seckel pear tree is bursting at the seams. One more week, and they will be ready to eat! :) Here is my favorite Pear Cookie recipe since I dug it out for a bake fest I'll have next week!
Pear Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 cups rolled oats
1-1/2 cups flour
2 fresh, medium-sized pears
1-1/4 tsp coarsely chopped cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
granulated sugar
Cream butter and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in remaining ingredients except sugar. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto lightly greased baking sheet. Sprinkle generously with sugar. Bake in 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. (Makes 4 1/2 dozen cookies)
