Vanilla Bourbon Pear Butter was featured as the October bonus recipe this year. When I am recipe testing, I often have multiple batches of whatever I’m working on crowding my fridge and counter space. I started to think of other ways to use the pear butter besides the obvious toast, pancake, waffle, charcuterie platter, etc. I scooped out the middle of cupcakes and filled it with a little pear butter (yum!), used it as a filling for hand pies, and then started to think of making truffles with it after Ashley and I decided to have December’s posts be about homemade gifts. I have loved this pear butter every which way I have used it, and while this truffle recipe is time consuming, it is not difficult and makes a unique and lovely gift to share during the holidays.
