Recipe by: Nikolaj Juel
Serves: 4


An easy, but totally delicious dessert.

Cut the pears in quarters and remove the seeds.

Grill the pears, so they have clear grill marks on both the flesh sides.

Melt the butter in an iron cast pan. Add the cinnamon stick, and vanilla pod and let it infuse for a minute. Add the pears and the honey and let the simmer, till you can easily pierce them with a knife.

Serve with some mascarpone crème.
