Bake up a batch of sweet pear dumplings this season! A soft, juicy pear is encased in tender pastry and braised in a sweet cinnamon sauce.
Place the sugar, water, butter, and cinnamon in a small pot.
Cook over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved and the sauce has thickened slightly.
Place the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl, and stir to combine.
Place the dumplings in a casserole dish.
