Glazed Roasted Pears w/ Mascarpone & Pine Cone Bud Syrup

Makes 6 Servings
Amontillado Sherry

An elegant dessert packed with rich flavors and absolutely gorgeous on the plate. This recipe does a great job of showcasing the pine cone bud syrup, which gives these pears a deep piney, resinous flavor.

  • 6 Pears, just ripe (ripe, but still firm)
  • 1 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • ¼ cup Honey
  • ¼ cup Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Pine Cone Bud Syrup (plus additional to finish plates)
  • 4 strips of Lemon Zest
  • Mascarpone Cheese



Preheat your oven to 425°F.

Peel the pears from the top down (leave the stems on), then remove a small slice from the base so they stand upright.

Put the pears in a roasting pan or baking dish, standing straight up. Add the butter, honey, sugar, lemon zest strips and tablespoon of pine cone bud syrup to the pan.

Put the baking dish in the oven and roast the pears for 30 minutes.

Turn the pears so they’re resting on their sides in the pan. Continue to roast for 15 minutes.

Turn the pears so they’re resting on their other side. Continue to roast for an additional 15 minutes.

Turn the pears again so they’re upright. Continue to roast for a final 15 minutes, opening the oven to baste the pears with the caramel in the pan every five minutes.


Remove the pears from the pan. Put them on a serving platter, in bowls, or on plates. Serve them with some of the caramel sauce from the pan, a dollop (or quenelle) of the mascarpone cheese, and a drizzle of pine cone bud syrup.
