Roquefort Pear Salad

Rating: 5 stars 2107
This is the best salad I've ever eaten and I make it all the time. It is tangy from the blue cheese, fruity from the pears, and crunchy from the caramelized pecans. The mustard vinaigrette pulls it all together.

Pear Clafoutis

Rating: 4.5 stars 17
It sounds odd to say that a recipe's biggest problem is that it looks too good, but that's the case with this pear clafoutis, a crustless custard fruit tart that often looks a lot sweeter and richer than it actually is. Usually made with cherries, this rustic French dessert adapts easily to any kind of seasonal fruit. If desired, brush the top with warmed fruit preserves and honey and garnish with whipped cream, creme fraiche, or ice cream.

Apple, Cranberry, and Pear Crisp

Rating: 4.5 stars 345
This is a variation of the traditional Apple Crisp that I dreamed up one day when I didn't have enough apples, and there were pears in the fruit bowl, and leftover toasted walnuts from something else. We love it. Cranberries can be substituted with raisins or dried cherries. Comice pears taste best with this recipe.

Pear Honey

This tastes so much like honey, your friends will never believe that the bees did not make it. Great on hot biscuits and to give as gifts. This was my grandmother's recipe that she made every fall. Hope you love it!

Poached Pears Belle Helene

Rating: 5 stars 14
They say Auguste Escoffier created this dish in honor of the opera, La Belle Helene, but we chefs know the real reason. How else are you going to use up bruised pears in such a delicious and beautiful way?

Baked Brie with Caramelized Pears, Shallots and Thyme

Rating: 4.5 stars 44
Brie baked in a round sourdough bread bowl makes this ultimately easy! You could substitute a sweet chutney for the topping for even easier prep. I microwaved the final product for a few minutes to speed up the cooking (couldn't wait for it to be ready!)
