  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 ripe but firm pears, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 (5 oz) bag Sunsweet® Cherries
  • pastry dough for 1 pie crust (such as Pillsbury® Refrigerated Pie Crust)
  • beaten egg and coarse sugar (optional)


Stir brown sugar and cinnamon together in a large bowl; add pear slices and toss until coated with mixture. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over high heat. When very hot, add pears and cook, stirring frequently, for 2 to 4 minutes or until brown sugar has turned thick and syrupy. Transfer back to bowl and stir in cornstarch and cherries. Roll dough into 6 equal balls. Roll each ball into a 6 inch circle on a lightly floured board. Place equal amounts of fruit in the center of each and bring the edges up to form a shell. Pinch lightly to secure dough around fruit. Brush with egg and sprinkle with coarse sugar, if desired. Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Best served warm.
