I haven't done much cooking with pears. The extent of my pear use has only been to put slices of them on top of lettuce, but for some reason I'm craving this fall fruit. Maybe it's because the trees outside my front window are barren and I'm wearing wooly socks. In any case, here are some fall pear recipes— excluding poached pears because those just don't sound good— for this chilly Sunday evening.
