Pears are in season and baking them into desserts is a great way to explore their flavor further! You can pair them with tea spices for a fall-inspired treat, or even use them as a topping on your favorite pancakes or pancakes (or oatmeal!). Pears, when baked or cooked, become sweeter and caramelize, giving them a wonderful flavor in desserts.

Peaches and pears also become sweeter and caramelize wonderfully in sweet dishes. You can bake them into muffins, use them in an upside-down cake, add them to oatmeal or eat them with your favorite dairy-free whipped cream or non-dairy yogurt.
