Who says bourbon can't be part of breakfast?

Easy & elegant; a perfect dessert recipe




Nine years later, this recipe still is a favorite. What's not to like in a recipe that combines sweetened mascarpone and wine-infused pears? It is so simple to make and also so beautiful to serve. When you add that it is amazingly
