fall pear desserts
Pears often get short shrift to apples in fall, especially since they are ripe for such a brief period of time, bruise easily and are messy to eat. Yet they have a delicate flavor, and a pleasant, slightly grainy texture. But it’s more than that, pears are a quiet fruit that meld quite nicely with baked goods. And, though it’s sticky, having a little fruit juice run down your cheek is one of the true pleasures in life.
We’ve been writing up a few pear recipes over on Babble.com’s Family Kitchen. We’ve got a buttery and surprising crisp with coconut and sunflower seeds, a simple, tangy cheesecake with a pear rosette and lime-pear sauce, and tender, moist quinoa pear muffins with a brown sugar topping.
