Pumpkin Cheesecake with Brown-Butter Pears

At Pulino's Bar & Pizzeria in Manhattan, pastry chef Jane Tseng creates dishes like this awesome dessert. She uses the tangy, pungent, soft-ripened Italian cheese Robiolina and house-made gingersnaps; the version here calls for cream cheese and boxed cookies.

Pairing: Juicy, sweet white: 2008 Anam Cara Cellars Nicholas Estate Gewürztraminer.
