Author Notes: When my backyard Bosc pear tree is ready for picking I have a variety of uses and this favorite is idea inspired by a yogurt baked pudding recipe acquired from an old co-worker; it is modified to my taste, using Greek style honey yogurt, nutmeg and almond extract. A delicious dessert, but my preference is to have it for breakfast!
