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 is a fantastic alternative to the traditional apple pie. It's a great way of making use of pears when in-season. A shortcrust pastry envelopes a sweet, slightly spiced pear filling. Enjoy with whipped cream, ice cream or custard. The perfect autumn treat for any time of the year.

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.

A great alternative to the traditional apple pie. A sweet pastry case is filled with sweetened pears, then topped with a sweetened, buttery and cheesy crumble. The Cheddar in this recipe complements the sweetness of the pears extremely well.

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.
