  • 2 medium pears, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced (2 cups)

  • 2 tablespoon butter

  • 3 eggs

  • cup heavy cream

  • cup milk

  • cup all-purpose flour

  • cup granulated sugar

  • 2 tablespoon almond liqueur or 1/4 teaspoon almond extract

  • 2 teaspoon vanilla

  • teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup sliced almonds

  • Powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Generously grease an 1 1/2-quart au gratin dish.

  2. In a large skillet cook pears in hot butter over medium heat for 5 to 6 minutes or until tender. Arrange cooked pears in the prepared dish.

  3. In a medium bowl combine eggs, cream, milk, flour, granulated sugar, liqueur, vanilla, and salt. Beat with a mixer on low until smooth. Pour batter over pears. Sprinkle with almonds.

  4. Bake, uncovered, 40 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned and a knife inserted off-center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. (The clafouti will fall as it cools.) Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve immediately.
