  • 1/2 cup pasteurized egg whites
  • 1/4 cup fine sanding sugar
  • 6 firm but ripe Seckel pears


  1. Step 1

    Beat egg whites in a small bowl. Place sugar in another small bowl.

  2. Step 2

    Dip bottom half of each pear in egg whites. Roll in sugar, and place pears upright on parchment paper. Let stand until dry, about 1 hour. Sugared pears are best the day they are made.
