INGREDIENTS for Souffle:

1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
5 eggs, separated
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 cup whipping cream
INGREDIENTS for Wine Sauce:

1/2 cup sugar
3 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 cup dry white wine
Sprinkle gelatin over cold water to soften.  Mix egg yolks with lemon juice, rind and 3/4 cup sugar.  Place in double boiler over boiling water and cook, stirring constantly, until lemon mixture is slightly thickened (about 8

cup sugar.  Beat until stiff.  Beat cream until stiff.  Fold egg whites and cream into yolk mixture until no white streaks remain.  Pour into a 2 quart souffle dish and chill 4 or more hours.  Serve with wine sauce.

TO PREPARE Wine Sauce:

2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons dark rum
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
13 square caramels
1 teaspoon dark rum
Cooking juices from pears
Vanilla ice cream

2.  Combine brown sugar, 2 Tablespoons rum, lemon juice and butter in microwaveable dish.  Heat on high in microwave until butter is melted, about 30 seconds.  Brush mixture over pears.
3.  Bake, uncovered, until pears are just tender, 20-25 minutes, brushing with pan juices 2 times during baking.  Reserve pan juices.  (Pears can be baked 1 day ahead, covered and refrigerated; let come to room temperature before reheating.)

6.  To serve, arrange 3 pear quarters in individual dessert dishes.  Top with scoops of vanilla ice cream.  Spoon caramel sauce over ice cream.
