Fall in Love with Pears, Again.

It’s officially FALL! Bring on all the flavors that epitomize this wonderful season like apples, persimmons and my personal favorite- PEARS! I love baking with poached pears because they turn out so soft and easy to eat. I usually buy the brown bosc pears, peel them, and stick them in boiling water with some cinnamon, honey and sugar. In about 10 minutes the entire house smells like literal heaven.

Once your pears are cooked, you can prep your pre-made puff pastry by defrosting it from the freezer. Once soft, you can cut the pear in half, de-seed and place on the puff pastry (keeping the stem, of course!). Lightly brush the sides with eggwash, stick in the oven at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes or until edges are brown. Once done, drizzle with caramel sauce, dulce de leche or simply powdered sugar. Voila! An easy, classically Fall dessert!
