"This is a potato latke like grandma never made, with beaten egg whites folded in for lighter texture. These latkes are more delicate than traditional potato latkes and make a wonderful dessert served with .." BRUNA'S CANDIED PEAR SLICES - Peel pears, core and cut into thick slices to equal about 12 slices per pear.

Place in large bowl and toss in lemon juice. Pour sugar over pears and toss to coat completely. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand 8 hours or overnight, until sugar liquefies. Remove pears, reserving sugar syrup.

Heat large, heavy skillet and add drained, sliced pears. Sauté pears, tossing constantly with wooden spoon, until brown, glazed and tender. In another large saucepan, bring sugar syrup to boil and simmer until thick.

Transfer pears to large bowl and pour syrup over. Makes about 3 cups.

"On a recent trip to Italy, we visited the Santini family at their ristorante Dal Pescatore. I watched Bruna Santini prepare these candied pears. It looked so easy, and they were so delicious. I could hardly wait to try them at home. A perfect accompaniment with any of the latke recipes."
