August came and went with a few beer for dessert baking failures. Failures!
These peach tartlets, however, were a success. Peaches are a sign of the last drops of summer around here. A reminder to savor the sun, sandals, and tank tops – for the few days that remain before we all hide under our raincoats and winter shoes.
The beer is delicious with peaches and honey. (The sneaky cat in the background is optional accoutroment.)

There’s something about Boon Geuze that reminds me of white wine, so it seems only natural to use it to poach some pears. The smell filling the house while the pears poach is just heavenly. Sweet, earthy, spicy, delicious.
Fall is in full force in the Pacific Northwest and I am prepared to fill my belly with beer-infused desserts.
