    Autumn is the time for pears, and what a better way to use your bounty than in a beautiful pear tart. Serve warmed with a little ice cream or a dollop of fresh cream.

    Invented this lovely pear and almond tart for a lunch when I had over-bought pears. You can get away with using firm pears for this because they soften up in cooking. Unlike some almond fillings, this is not too heavy or rich.

    Autumn is a great time for making this classic French dessert, with an abundance of pears about please try this really easy but very impressive recipe. This is a rustic recipe, I have just halved and quartered the pears, took out the cores and that's it. I prefer to leave the skin on them, as you if eat the dish warm they just melt in your mouth, but you can if you wish remove the skin. You can though really go to town and make this a really pretty dish.

    This tart is a delicious change from the average fruit tart. A shortcrust pastry case is filled with fresh pears and a spongecake batter, before being baked to perfection. Serve on its own, with whipped cream, ice cream or custard.

    A delicious alternative to the traditional apple pie. Pears are tossed with sugar, cinnamon, lemon zest and dotted with butter, before being baked in a shortcrust pastry. Serve as is, with sweetened whipped cream or ice cream.
