Cooking With Kitty #7

Kitty doesn’t believe in wasting food, so this week we’re going to bake with overripe produce – or particularly pears. We bought these in the last lockdown and they were looking a bit past their used by date, so I goggled pear recipes and discovered the one below.

Chocolate Chip Pear Drop Biscuits

An Italian In My Kitchen


  • 2 cups all purpose flour (260 grams)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (100 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt*
  • 2 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup butter (softened)* (105 grams)
  • 1 medium-large pear (peeled, cleaned & finely chopped) (or 2 small)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (semi sweet or milk) (85 grams)
  • Pre-heat oven to 350F (180C). Line a large or 2 medium cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugars, baking powder and salt. Add the eggs and butter and beat on medium speed to combine. 
  • Fold in the chopped pear and chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls on the prepared cookie sheet and bake for about 15-18 minutes or until lightly golden. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet then move to a wire rack. Enjoy!
