Pears are at their peak right now and we can’t pass by them at the market without stocking up. A good juicy pear is sure hard to beat this time of year! It’s one of those fruits that are so snackable and bakeable!

I love how all the natural sweetness comes out in a pear when it’s baked. Whether it be a pie or a crisp or this fantastic sweet bread, pears are pretty perfect to bake with.
