I whipped up this delicious dessert of Warm Chinese Pears With Cinnamon and Nuts after a trip to an Asian market, where I found these Chinese pears, also called apple pears.

These pears/apples are so good! They’re so juicy, crunchy, and sweet with a flavor that really tastes like a perfect mix of apple and pear. They are now one of my favorite fruits, and this dessert is reserved for special occasions when I want something a little different.

The warm pears get slightly soft from cooking and  are almost glazed in a delicious, buttery, cinnamony sauce. Add some toasted walnuts and shredded coconut and it’s reminiscent of an apple pie.

And you all know how I love apple pie.

Oh, you didn’t know that?

Well, check out this recipe for Deep Dish Apple Pie with Fennel and Ginger. It’s grain and dairy free and hands down the best apple pie you’ll ever eat. 😉

But, again, I digress.

This Warm Chinese Pears With Cinnamon and Nuts is not completely without a dollop of whipped cream, coconut cream, or vanilla ice cream. So, whip some up, sit back, and enjoy!

  1. In New Zealand we call these Nashi Pears and they are one of my favourite fruits. So juicy and delicious. I could eat one every day and not get sick of them.

    • Hi Emma! Thanks for sharing the different name! Love to hear about how things are in other parts of the world. I forgot you’re in New Zealand!! How ironic. I was just talking to my Mom this weekend about how I want to move there! 🙂
