A Simple, Elegant Dessert

I began to reconsider traditional holiday baking when I realized that something that makes me sick and fat might not be a treat. For dessert on Christmas eve, I like to serve half a very good pear with the center filled with the best chocolate sauce I can lay my hands on. A piece of shortbread on the side and a little cup of the best coffee I can field round out the experience, as does a presentation of other small goodies like fine chocolates, marzipan, and choice nuts. Absent a carefully home-ripened pear, a canned one from a premium commercial brand does very well -30-
