You can use almost any variety of pears here, but Bosc pears are our go-to variety for baking because they hold their shape best. Look for ones that are fragrant and ready to eat but still firm to the touch.

Rating: Unrated
Even the brown butter used in this apple dessert recipe is extra special. It's spiced with your favorite fall spices (cinnamon and allspice). Drizzled atop this layered dessert it adds gooey enticement.
