Recipe by Jessica S

Very light & tasty dessert. Great for asian themed dinners, or just because. You can also serve with homemade sugar or almond cookies

These are great for an easy fruit dessert and it also gave me a chance to use my new steamer. However I made I few minor changes to this recipe by using red pears I split them in half, seeding and cored them and put the honey and white wine (I didn't have any cognac) in the pit before covering with the second half. Thanks for sharing this super easy dessert which we will be having again soon.
