Smoked Pears With Mascarpone Cheese Recipe

Smoked Pears With Mascarpone Cheese Recipe

This Smoked Pears with Mascarpone Cheese Recipe will just hit the spot. If you are not familiar with it, Mascarpone is a triple-creme cheese, made from a generally low-fat (25%) content fresh cream. It’s made from the milk of cows that have been fed special grasses, filled with fresh herbs and flowers. This special diet creates a unique taste often described as “fresh and delicious.” If you don’t have Mascarpone, use Philly cream cheese instead. But I love Mascarpone cheese. It is sweet, has a very silky texture, and its taste is very similar to whipping cream.


6 Pears sliced in halves and cored

For the Sauce:

1½ Cups apple juice

1 Tbsp brown sugar

½ Tbsp cinnamon

2 Tbsp butter


4 Oz of mascarpone cheese

1 Tsp vanilla extract

2 Tsp sugar


Heat up the sauce in the microwave to melt the sugar.

Give it a good stir and pour it on pears.

Set the smoker to 300ºF and load it with 1½ hours of apple bisquettes.

The temperature of the smoker stayed right around 240 degrees.

Mix all the topping ingredients together.

Then spoon it on top of the pears and drizzle a bit of maple syrup on top with a few pecan nuts.
