    P4's Note:

    This is one of my favorite fall desserts. It is not a traditional charlotte by any means, but it is wonderful! And very simple to do. It can be made ahead and reheated, then unmolded just prior to service. It can be made with pears. Just make sure the bread you use is firm in texture -
