Apple and Pear, an Outstanding Fall Flavor Combo
Bring the flavors of fall into your kitchen with apple and pear treats.
There is no season quite like fall for baking. I can’t get enough of it. Just ask my husband – from September through November our fridge is usually full of every type of baked good you can imagine.
One of my favorite flavors of fall is the classic pairing of apple and pear. Both fruits are at their peak this time of year, tasting just as amazing in pastries as they do on their own. For the purpose of baking, I like to stick with my favorite oven-friendly fruit varieties: Bosc and Anjou pears, Granny Smith and Pink Lady apples. They hold their own in terms of flavor when combined with heavier ingredients like sugar, butter, cream and caramel.
