I love pears. I mean, I really love pears. So I was thrilled when I found this recipe for pear and granola parfaits.
But why stop there?
Instead of buying those little itsy single-serve containers of high fructose corn syrup-filled yogurt, why not buy a big tub of plain light yogurt and make my own pear flavored yogurt?
And pancakes! I see strawberry and blueberry pancake topping all the time at restaurants, why not pears?
Or put them on cheesecake, or angel food cake.
My favorite, though, is ice cream. I poured the pears and their sauce over a bowl of vanilla Häagen-Dazs, and it was some of the best ice cream I've ever had.
Ah, pear season, I'll miss you when you're gone.
