1. In a bowl mix the Marscapone with the half cup of honey and 1/4 cup sugar. Mix with a hand mixer or a stand mixer.
2. Mix the other 1/4 cup sugar and fresh ground pepper (probably 5 twists of grinder or half a teaspoon of pepper) with the cup of balsamic vinegar.
3. Marinate the sliced pears in the vinegar for 30 minutes to an hour in the fridge.
4. Place sliced pears in individual bowls or cups. Place a large dollop of the sweetened marscapone cheese in each bowl. Drizzle the balsamic vinegar on top.
This dessert was tasty…but, certainly a different style of dessert that I’ve ever done before!
I was intentionally vague when I created the print out with the menu. I had no idea what kind of cake I was going to make for the event. I ended up going with a simple chocolate cake with an Irish cream frosting. It was quite yummy, if I do say so myself.
