Join us as we explore the enchantment of autumn, one bite at a time, with a recipe that promises to make your taste buds sing—the irresistible and heartwarming Air-Fried Cinnamon Sugar Pears, brought to life by the Holstein Housewares.
- 2 ripe pears, cored and sliced into wedges
- 1 tablespoon melted butter or coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar or honey (adjust to taste)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- A pinch of salt
- Cooking spray (for greasing the air fryer basket)
1. Preheat the Air Fryer:
Preheat your Holstein Housewares air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for a few minutes.
2. Prepare the Pears:
Wash, peel (optional), and core the pears. Slice them into wedges or slices.
3. Coat with Butter and Seasoning:
In a bowl, drizzle the melted butter or coconut oil over the pear slices.
Sprinkle ground cinnamon, brown sugar or honey, vanilla extract (if using), and a pinch of salt over the pears.
Toss the pear slices to coat them evenly with the mixture.
4. Air Fry the Pears:
Lightly grease the air fryer basket with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
Arrange the coated pear slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not overcrowded.
5. Air Fryer:
Air fry the pears at 375°F (190°C) for 10-12 minutes or until they are tender and slightly caramelized. You can shake the basket or flip the pears halfway through for even cooking.
Once done, remove the air-fried pears from the basket and transfer them to a serving dish.
7. Optional Toppings:
You can add a dollop of whipped cream, a sprinkle of chopped nuts (like pecans or almonds), or a drizzle of honey for extra sweetness.
