Caramel Pear Terrine
Sugar and spice mingle in this stunning terrine constructed of layers of paper-thin pear slices that are baked until meltingly tender. A dusting of star anise imparts a subtle but memorable zing.
Recipe Summary test
Grate star anise using a Microplane zester or the finest holes on a box grater. Avoid preground star anise, which has a less intense flavor. If you don't have a charlotte mold, use a 6-inch cake pan that's 3 inches deep; the baking time remains the same.
