Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Instructions

  1. Pears:
  2. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Peel, core and quarter the pears. Melt the butter in a large casserole or baking dish (I used a 10 quart Le Creuset Dutch Oven), add the pears and cook over high heat for about ten minutes or until the pears are golden brown. Keep stirring them so they are evenly colored. Transfer the baking dish/casserole into the oven for 7-10 minutes until the pears are easily pierced with a paring knife. Remove the pears from the oven, transfer to a bowl, and let them cool to room temperature.
  3. Blackberry Sauce:
  4. Wash and dry the blackberries. (I use a salad spinner). Reserve cup of the berries for garnish. Put the 3 cups of blackberries, the powered sugar and the lemon juice in a food processor and pure. Pour the pure into a bowl and set aside.
  5. Pre-heat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. Take a full size sheet pan and line it with a silpat mat. (If you dont have one, use parchment paper sprayed with Pam cooking spray) Get a large pastry bag with a star tip ready. Put the granulated sugar in a food processor and blitz into a very fine powder, about a minute. Transfer the superfine sugar to a bowl. Add the confectioners sugar and the chocolate to the food processor and process until the chocolate is pulverized into tiny flecks. Transfer to a bowl. Pour the egg whites into a mixing bowl and beat at slow speed with a whisk attachment until the egg whites begin to froth, then add the cream of tartar. Increase the speed to high and beat the whites until they form stiff peaks. Add the superfine sugar and continue to beat for another two minute
  6. Using a spatula, fill the pastry bag with the egg white mixture and pipe out the meringue kisses onto the lined baking sheet. As you finish squeezing out a dollop of egg white, gently push the star tip of the pastry bag into the dollop about inch and then quickly pull it away: that action gives the top a small point.
  7. When all the meringues are piped out, place the baking sheet in the oven for an hour-and-a half. Youre not baking the meringues, but simply drying out the egg whites. Theyre done when the meringue is hard to the touch. Remove the meringues from the oven and let cool to room temperature.
  8. To plate and serve, spoon several tablespoons of blackberry sauce into the center of a bowl, add 3 0r 4 pear quarters, several meringue kisses, and garnish with a few whole blackberries.
