The French baked custard-and-fruit dessert known as clafoutis has a rustic appeal that’s perfect for casual dinner parties.
Check the Neck: The best way to tell if a pear of any variety is ripe is to press gently near the stem. It should give slightly, but the bottom should still feel firm. Underripe pears can be stored at room temperature to ripen. Once they are ripe, they can be refrigerated for an additional three days.

Have made this several times: it's SO delicious, but not heavy or too sweet! It's a winner!
This was fabulous! And easy. I didn't have pear brandy, so used a vanilla liqueur. Delicious!
