Yield Information
Number of Portions: 6+ Servings

Quantity Unit Ingredient
6 Egg yolks
½ Cup Vermouth or Marsala
½ Cup Granulated sugar
1 Pinch Cinnamon
1 Pinch Lemon zest About ⅛ teaspoon
1 Cup Heavy Cream Cold
3 Red pears Cut into wedges
3 Bartlet pears Cut into wedges
18 Wooden skewers


In, a medium stainless steel bowl, add first three ingredients, and set over a double boiler (so bowl fits over entire pan of simmering water). Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for approximately 5 minutes, or until mix doubles in size and thickens to a custard-type consistency. Set aside and cool on counter completely.

In a separate bowl, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form, approximately 5 minutes. 

Fold whipped cream into completely cooled custard mix, until completely incorporated. Place a skewer in each wedge of pear, and arrange on serving tray.
