    Title: Honeyed Pears In Puff Pastry
    Categories: Fruits, Pastry, Citrus
    Yield: 4 servings

    4 sm Pears
    4 c Water
    2 c Sugar
    1 c Honey
    1 sm Lemon; halved
    3 (3") cinnamon sticks
    6 (to 8) whole cloves
    1 Vanilla bean
    1 Sheet puff pastry; thawed
    1 lg Egg; lightly beaten

    Core pears from bottom, leaving stems intact. Peel
    pears; cut 1/4" from the bottom of each to level if

    In a large saucepan, combine the water, sugar, honey,
    lemon halves, cinnamon and cloves. Split vanilla bean
    and scrape seeds; add bean and seeds to sugar mixture.
    Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; place pears on their sides
    in saucepan and poach, uncovered, until almost tender,
    basting occasionally with poaching liquid, 16-20

    Remove pears with a slotted spoon; cool slightly. Strain
    and reserve 1 1/2 cups poaching liquid; set aside.

    Unfold puff pastry on a lightly floured surface. Cut
    into 1/2" wide strips. Brush lightly with beaten egg.
    Starting at the bottom of a pear, wrap a pastry strip
    around pear, adding additional strips until pear is
    completely wrapped in pastry. Repeat with remaining
    pears and puff pastry.

    Transfer to a parchment-lined 15" X 10" X 1" baking pan.
    Bake on a lower oven rack @ 400ºF/205ºC until golden
    brown, 25-30 minutes.

    Meanwhile, bring reserved poaching liquid to a boil;
    cook until liquid is thick and syrupy, about 10 minutes.
    Place pears on dessert plates and drizzle with syrup.
    Serve warm.
