  3. Gently fold pears into the batter.
  4. Heat deep fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Drop batter by rounded spoonfuls into hot oil, and fry until golden brown. Drain briefly on paper towels. Serve hot.

I ended up sprinkling a little sugar in with the pears to get them to caramelize while sauteing them. I also added 2tsp sugar and some cinnamon, ground allspice, and a little ground ginger to the batter. This made the fritters into a sweet, fried treat. Turned out great!

My first problem was that the pears did not carmelize during the saute. Perhaps they were too ripe or I used the wrong type of pan-I used a nonstick skillet, but they just got mushy and a lot of juice was released. I had to strain the juice out there was so much. Anyway, I was thinking this would be like apple fritters, then noticed there is no sugar listed in the recipe, so I added some and some cinnamon. When they came out of the fryer, I drained them on paper towels then sprinkled them with sugar. They were really kinda boring. I thought the kids would love them, since I don't normally fry stuff for them, but they each ate one and that was that. I had many left over-not a good sign in my house for a repeat. We won't try this one again.

Simple, easy, and crowd pleasing. Everyone enjoyed the origanal take on a classic, and I can't wait to experiment.

Fantastic!!! I had some borderline overripe pears and needed a way to use them. I found this recipe and gave it a try. I'm SO glad I did!!! I'll for sure be making these again!

I'd say this is 10 stars, I made these for dessert and dusted them with powdered sugar, my whole family loved them, even my husband who doesn't like sweets!

These were really good! Easy recipe but don't overcook. They only take a couple of minutes on each side.
