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.
