Pear Turon

Makes 24 Servings


  • 3 cups brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp. paprika
  • 24 Pacific Northwest Canned Pear Slices, well drained
  • 24 lumpia wrappers
  • Vegetable oil, for deep frying
  • 24 scoops vanilla ice cream

    Combine brown sugar and paprika in mixing bowl. Reserve half for use in serving. Toss pears in remaining sugar mixture until well coated. Working with 1 lumpia wrapper at a time, place wrapper at an angle on work surface forming a diamond shape. Moisten the edge of the wrapper with water. Place 1 pear slice horizontally across the middle of the wrapper. Fold the left and right sides into the middle, then carefully roll from bottom to top, starting at the lower edge. Repeat until all pear slices and wrappers are rolled. Pan fry each in vegetable oil until golden brown on all sides. Drain then dredge in remaining brown sugar mixture. Serve each with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
