Recommendations for using up overripe pears

arielleeve | Sep 8, 201303:29 PM     13

Got a big bag of pears (i believe they are seckel, but not positive) in our CSA last week. They started to brown and have now been in the fridge, so I need to use them soon. Problem is, I'm really on overload for baked goods with fruit right now. All summer I've been making muffins, scones, cakes, crumbles, crisps, cobblers, and pies. And especially in the last week I've been eating a lot of that stuff because we had a BBQ on labor day, then hosted Rosh Hashonah, and today I baked birthday cupcakes for a friend. I seriously need a break from dessert baked goods. Normally I would use the pears in a sandwich or salad, but I think they're too ripe for that. Any suggestions for other ways to use them? Breakfast options (other than muffins or scones :) ) would be good. I was thinking of pear sauce, maybe?
