This is it! The home stretch! The last pear recipe this fall, before I succumb to the pumpkin fever that’s sweeping the nation and paint my face orange in a woefully misguided attempt at fitting in! Are you ready to rumble? Previously in my not-at-all official pear series, I shared recipes for Pear Cupcakes with…

Pear Pistachio Tart with Rosemary Crust

Operation Aaaahhhh Get These Pears Out Of My House! continues. (The name is a work in progress.) My first assault against the giant box of pears involved Pear Cupcakes with Honey Buttercream, and while it was a moderate success, many, many pears remained. Today’s solution? A pear pistachio tart. When you look at the list…

Buckle up, cupcakes, there is major cuteness ahoy. What, like you’ve never made a recipe just so you could top it with an adorable miniature candy fruit? Actually, these pear cupcakes served a dual purpose: I got to indulge my love of whimsy and painfully literal cupcake decorating, and also got to address what is…

Pear Tarte Tatin

In my house, we’re kind of geniuses when we’re asleep. Exhibit A: This recipe for Cinnamon Bun Hot Chocolate, which (seriously) came to me in a dream, and is dreamy in every sense of the word. Exhibit B: The dream I had the other night where I came up with a totally new mattress design….

TWD: Fold-Over Pear Torte

What a strange little hybrid dessert this was. It uses pie dough, but it’s baked in a springform pan. The filling is chopped fresh pears, and pecans, and dried apricots. It’s all held together with a vanilla custard, and then the pie crust is partially folded over the edges. So many things going on! It’s…

Pear-Pistachio Tart and a GIVEAWAY!

Wow, did this tart smack me upside the head and surprise me. I am so not a pistachio person. I don’t hate them, but they’re low on my list of go-to nuts, and I can’t ever remember craving pistachios or pistachio flavored anything. And also, they’re green. What is that about?Imagine my surprise, then, when…

TWD: Allspice Crumb Muffins

These Allspice Crumb Muffins looked great, but they really, really did not work for me. And I love muffins! And I love crumb topping! And I love spices! I even added some diced pears to the batter to give it a nice fall, fruit-and-spice-and-everything-nice flavor. However, all the pears in the world couldn’t help these…

Pear and Gouda Scones

Recently I was lucky enough to receive some samples from a company called Oh! Nuts. They sell…you guessed it…all different kinds of nuts and dried fruit, along with many candies and snack items. (The selection really is amazing, and after a quick browse-through I’ve discovered about 5374 ingredients I simply must have.) The samples I…
