It’s pear season at La Cressonnière, and I can’t wait to make these caramel pears for some of our friends and neighbors. I’m always on the lookout for simple, homemade, and epically delicious gifts to share on a whim with those I like an awful lot. Just because are two of my favorite words together.

Do you have a go-to foodie gift that makes you feel like a rockstar giver? I’ve made these a few times; they’re adorably tiny and sweet to package up, melt-in-your-mouth treasures that will make everyone in any room a little happier. I promise.

I must warn you that every single post and photo on this brilliant blog is edible and positively irresistible. You will gain three pounds just by reading it.
