I looked at the calendar this week and realized that Thanksgiving is about a week sooner than I thought, which got me plotting potential holiday fall treats!

I’ve discussed my love for pears in fall desserts multiple times, but I need to reiterate that when combined with bourbon and maple, pears may beat out your favourite apple dessert.

Galettes are also great for last minute gatherings when you need a delicious dessert, but you don’t want to deal with the hassle of a lattice or prebaking crust. Perfectly simple and rustic yet completely delicious!
