Fiesta Pear Dessert

An impressive finale for a south-of-the-border-style meal.


4 bartlett pears, cored and chopped

1/2 cup white sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1/2 cup cookie crumbs, of your choice

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1 quart vanila ice cream

4 -6 (7 to 8 inch) flour tortillas

oil for frying

honey (optinal)

ground cinnamon and sugar for dusting (optional)



To Prepare Tortilla Shells: In a deep frying pan bring oil to 375 degrees F

(190 degrees C). Place one tortilla in the hot oil gently pressing the

center with a wooden spoon or ladle until the tortilla forms a cup. Gently

turn and fry each tortilla separately until golden brown on both sides.


Combine pears, sugar, cornstarch, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and lemon

zest. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil; cook

1 minute longer. Let mixture cool.


Combine cookie crumbs, pecans and remaining cinnamon. Form ice

cream into 4 – 6 balls; roll in crumb mixture to coat.


Place an ice cream ball in each fried tortilla shell. Top with the cooled

pear mixture. Fried tortilla shells can be brushed with honey and dusted

with ground cinnamon and sugar before filling, if desired.

Makes 4 -6 servings
