Pear Scones with Caramel Drizzle

I'm finishing up #FallFlavors week with what I feel is one of the most underrated items of the season, pears.  I know that I'm guilty of going all gaga for apples as soon as the calendar flips to September, but there are so many awesome pear varieties available too! 

This post is sponsored in conjunction with Fall Flavors Week. I recieved product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own.

Now, I realize calling these scones may cause some contention with people. Some would call them biscuits or shortcakes.  I'm not really one to feel obligated to stick to tradition when it comes to food, I just want it to taste delicious!


Whatever you call them, these little treats are chock full of bits of pear, beautiful vanilla flavor, and then taken totally over the top with a drizzle of caramel sauce. 



Once again, my thanks to Ellen, Christie, and Heather for hosting, as well as to all of the amazing sponsors who made #FallFlavors Week possible.  Be sure to go and check out all of the other recipes down below!

Pear Scones with Caramel Drizzle
Author: Jolene Martinelli

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cold, cubed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon Taylor & Colledge Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 1 cup diced pears
  • Torani Puremade Caramel Sauce

Instructions:

  1. Heat oven to 375. Line 2 baking sheets with silpat or parchment.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter or a fork.
  3. Whisk eggs, greek yogurt, vanilla bean paste together in another bowl.
  4. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry. Add the pears, do not overmix. Dough will be sticky.
  5. Drop dough onto the prepared sheets in 1/4 cup portions (I like to use a large cookie scoop).
  6. Bake 20 to 25 mins, rotating the baking sheets halfway through the cooking time. Let cool on sheets for 2 to 3 mins, move to wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Drizzle with caramel sauce before serving.

authorHello, my name is Cherine, but you can call me "Chicho" :) I am Lebanese and I live in Paris. Welcome to my internet kitchen, grab a cup of coffee, a macaron and get comfy! This blog is my recipe journal. It's where I write about the recipes that intersect my everyday life. Often the recipes are from my cookbook collection, my magazines, my favorite blogs... sometimes not, they might come from my mother, a friend, a neighbour... or I might write about a recipe I invented myself.
