Truth time. I am dreaming of fall. I hate summer, and every summer I count the days until the official start of fall. I love everything about fall, the food, the drinks, the weather, Halloween for f’s sake. So…dreaming of fall here is a little nod to fall that makes me super happy. It had my house smelling like cinnamon and nutmeg, that makes me smile.

Ahhh…the humble pear. I feel like it is very under used and under appreciated. Why should apples have all the fun?

We bought some organic pears last weekend, and I have been dying to put them to good use. So, here is a fall inspired pear treat!

Ingredients:

1 C. Vegan butter ( I use Earth Balance )

2 C. Brown sugar

1/2 C. Apple sauce

2 tsp. Vanilla

1 tsp. Baking soda

2 C.  All purpose flour

3 tsp. Cinnamon

A pinch of nutmeg

A pinch of salt

2 Pears ( chopped)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350. In a mixing bowl, cream vegan butter and brown sugar.

2. Add apple sauce and vanilla.

3. Sift dry ingredients.

4. Add dry ingredients to wet a little at a time. Mixing just until combined.

5. Toss chopped pears in a little flour to soak up some of the juice. Stir pears into batter.

6. Spray a 13×9 pan with non stick spray. Pour batter into pan.

7. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

8. Eat as is or top with a simple glaze of powdered sugar and almond milk.
