Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in butter and shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide in half; wrap each portion in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until easy to handle.
  2. Peel pears and cut each into eight wedges. Roll out each portion of dough into a 10-in. x 8-in. rectangle. Cut each into eight 1-in.-wide strips. Wrap each strip around a pear wedge.
  3. Place wrapped pears in an ungreased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Combine brown sugar and spices; sprinkle over the top. In a small saucepan, bring water and butter to a boil; pour mixture over pear twists. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream if desired. Yield: 8 servings.
