  • 3/4 c Granulated sugar
  • 4 Egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 ts Vanilla
  • 1 tb Pear liqueur [optl]

Return mixture to saucepan; cook over medium-low heat for about 12 minutes
or just until mixture coats back of spoon. Stir in remaining whipping
cream, vanilla, and pear liqueur.

Meanwhile, peel, core and coarsely chop pears. Combine in saucepan with 1/4
cup water; cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until heated through. In
blender or food processor, pure pears with liquid. There should be about
1-1/2 cups.

Stir pear pure into custard. Place waxed paper directly on surface and
refrigerate until completely chilled. Freeze in ice-cream maker following
manufacturer's instructions.
