Method

Line a buttered Charlotte mould with a layer of fairly firm Brioche Paste. Fill it with layers of quarters of pears cooked in vanilla-flavoured syrup and kept a little firm, alternating with layers of a fairly stiff purée of apricots cooked with sugar.

Close up the timbale with a layer of the same pastry, moisten the edges and seal well together. Make a small hole in the top for the steam to escape and bake in a moderate oven for approximately 40 minutes.

On removing the Timbale from the oven, turn it out on to a dish and coat with Apricot Sauce flavoured with Maraschino.
