Mikekey, this is such an impressive recipe! WOW, wow and wow! :) It is so easy to make and the results are a firework of flavour. Everything goes so well together and makes for a truly delightful treat. If I ever need to entertain fancy people, this will be for dessert for sure! I totally forgot to sprinkle the walnuts on top in the end, but that didnt harm the flavour or presentation at all, though next time Ill add them just to see if that is even better. I dont drink alcohol that often, so I thought the wine was enough for me in this and left out the rum.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us!

A really nice and different type of special dessert! Not as difficult as it seems like it might be - just have to remember to start the pears early so they can marinate and chill. I didn't use a cheesecloth bag for spices - just strained the syrup before refrigerating. The chocolate mascarpone - mmmmmm, yummy. The pears have a nice, spicy flavor, but not too much. The biscotti were a nice accompaniment. Thanks!
