The pear-fect dessert 🍐🍫



Total time: 40 minutes

Ingredients for 6 people

1 1/2 cups biscoff cookies

3 pears

1/2 cup melted white chocolate

1/3 cup butter

3/4 cup raw cane sugar

2 vanilla beans

1/2 cup mascarpone cream

1 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream

1/3 cup powdered sugar

25 lady fingers

1/2 cup pear juice

6 poached pears

1/4 cup caramel


Tools

1 electric mixer

1 springform pan


Step 1/5

Crush the biscoff cookies so that they are sand like in texture. Make 2 pear impressions by pushing a pear into the biscoff cookie powder and pressing down the crumbs around it. Fill the impressions with melted white chocolate.

Step 2/5

In a frying pan, melt the butter, add 1/2 cup raw cane sugar, and 3 diced pears. Then add the rest of the raw cane sugar and a vanilla pod with its seeds scraped off. Let caramelize.

Step 3/5

Whip the mascarpone cream, the heavy whipping cream, the powdered sugar, and the vanilla bean seeds together to make a thick cream.

Step 4/5

Remove the white chocolate pears from the plate of biscoff cookie powder. Cover the edges and bottom of the springform pan with lady fingers dipped in pear juice. Add a layer of the whipped cream, biscoff cookie powder, diced caramelized pears, and cover with lady fingers dipped in pear juice. Repeat with a layer of whipped cream, biscoff cookie powder, diced pears, and finish with a layer of whipped cream. Place in a cool place.

Step 5/5

Meanwhile, remove the biscoff cookie powder from the 2 white chocolate pears and stick them together with a teaspoon of melted leftover white chocolate to form a pear. Remove the cake from the springform pan and place the white chocolate pear in the center. Cut a hole at the bottom of the poached pears and fill them with caramel sauce. Then arrange them around the white chocolate pear on top of the cake. In a bowl of ice water, draw 6 small melted dark chocolate pear stems with a piping bag and plant them in the poached pears. Serve and enjoy!
