  • 6 pears (doyenne de comice)

  • 2 whole eggs + 2 yolks

  • 60 g almond powder

  • 30 cl of whipping cream

  • 1 lemon

  • 70 g brown sugar

Preparation Preheat the oven to 210 ° C. Wash the lemon, finely grate its zest and squeeze its juice. Peel, seed and slice the pears into half. Place them in an oven dish and sprinkle them with lemon juice. Powder them with 40 gram of brown sugar and cook in the oven for 20 minutes. Whip the whipping cream with the almond powder, the rest of the remaining brown sugar, the whole eggs and yolks. Mix well and add the lemon zest. Take the pears out of the oven.
