Ingredients

  • 4 Pears (I used D'Anjou)
  • 4 tablespoons butter , softened
  • 1/4- cup chocolate chips , coarsely chopped
  • 1/4- cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons butter , melted
  • 8 phyllo sheets , divided
  • turbinado sugar (optional)

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  • Peel the pears.
  • Cut about 1/2 inch from bottoms of pears, and discard.
  • Using a melon baller, core pears three-fourths of the way up. Do not cut through to the top.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine butter, chocolate and walnuts; using a fork, stir the mixture until fully incorporated.
  • Fill each pear with about 1 tablespoon of the chocolate mixture; set aside.
  • Layer 4 pieces of Phyllo sheets on prepared baking sheet, brushing each sheet with the melted butter before adding the next.
  • Cut the sheets right down the middle, crosswise. You should have 2 phyllo stacks.
  • Place 1 pear in the center of one of the phyllo stacks; wrap the phyllo sheets around the pear, overlapping diagonal corners on top of the pear.
  • Place on prepared baking pan and brush with butter.
  • Repeat with remaining pears and phyllo sheets.
  • Sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  • Bake for 35 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool.
  • Serve.
