Perfect Bake® recipe

Pear Fennel Seed Butter

Perfectly ripe pears are best when making this spread—they practically melt into the ground fennel seed and wine to create a bright, crisp, refreshing flavor that is a pleasant surprise in the fall and winter. This butter is baked rather than cooked on the stove, making it a little easier to walk away from while cooking than other fruit butters.
