My kids and I made up this recipe one day for lunch. The juxtaposition of the Cheddar, pears, and peanut butter is yummy and decently healthy for kids. I’m sure there are a dozen variations that would be equally delicious and quick, but this is what we had on hand that day!
Original recipe makes 4 servings
1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls
1/4 cup peanut butter, divided
1 Asian pear, chopped – divided
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
- Combine two crescent roll triangles by overlapping the seams, creating a square. Repeat with remaining dough to form 4 squares total.
- Spread 1 tablespoon peanut butter in the center of each square; top each with pieces of Asian pear. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon atop pear slices; top with Cheddar cheese. Fold one corner of a square over to completely cover the fillings, creating a triangle; seal the edges together. Repeat with remaining squares. Arrange pear pockets on the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake on the preheated oven until dough is lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes.
