Quick and easy stuffed pears recipe, plus links

Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve your own original vintage family recipes, or out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers, and postcards. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Household Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?


This week for Vintage Recipe Thursday, I am sharing a very easy recipe you can make anytime of year because it uses canned pears.

If you haven't already done so, enter my latest giveaway of Corked, a memoir by Kathryn Borel about a father, a daughter, and a wine trip to end all wine trips. There will be 5 winners.

I also reviewed a great cake book, Rose's Heavenly Cakes, and highly recommend it, so be sure to read my review because I consider this book to be a must-have.

And if you haven't yet given up on healthy eating or weight loss for this new year, this week I shared a second recipe from TV's Biggest Loser Resort for a triple berry smoothie.


Stuffed Pears Recipe

6 halves canned pears
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine stiffly whipped cream, nuts, sugar, and vanilla. Pile lightly into chilled pears. 6 servings.
