Pears made into cute little mice! * A quick pear dessert - In general, a typical Australian dish is a typical British dish, which is to say a typical European or American dish with most of the subtleties of flavour (and difficulty in making) removed. The following dessert is a genuine Old Family Favorite in Australia. * Candied angelica is almost impossible to find in North America. Anything else with the appropriate properties of sweetness and shape may be substituted, e.g. a piece of chocolate or candy cut to size, such as an Ovation mint divided longitudinally or shoestring candy.You can also add the shoestring for whiskers.
- Carefully place the pear halves, round side up, in the serving dish.
- At the narrow end of each half, add two almond halves to make mouse ears.
- Place one clove for the noses. (Be sure not to eat.).
- At the other end, insert the angelica to make a tail. Enjoy with your favorite cookies!
