2 tablespoons butter

1 pear, peeled, cored and diced

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. For the Sabayon: In a double boiler, add the apple brandy. Add the eggs and begin whisking.

  2. For the caramelized apples and pears: In a saute pan, melt the butter. Add the pears and apples, the brown sugar, the nutmeg and the cinnamon. Saute for 5 minutes, or until the fruit begins to soften. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the 3 tablespoons brandy. Carefully flambe the brandy.
