  • Whip the sugar and butter until white and frothy. Add the egg, flour, baking powder and salt. Whip until creamy. Add the chocolate and pecans. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and roll out until 5 mm (1/4 inch) thick. Bake at 350°F (180°C) for approximately 10 minutes, until the cookies are light-coloured. Once cooled, cut the cookies in half.

Candied quince

  • Mix the diced quince with the syrup in a sauce pan and cook on low heat until crystallized (15 to 20 minutes). After cooking, remove and save the syrup and add the leaf gelatine sheet. Set aside.


  • Melt the Le Ciel de Charlevoix into the sweetened cream in a saucepan over very low heat. Add the rehydrated gelatin leaves. Mix and filter the mixture with a China cap strainer or with cheesecloth. Let cool to room temperature. Add the whipped cream a bit at a time until the mixture is smooth.

Caramelized pecans

  • Mix all the ingredients in a baking dish. Bake at 350°F (180°C) until caramelized (approximately 5 minutes). Add 1/3 of the cheese stick mix into a rectangular mould.
  • Sprinkle with caramelized pecans and top with a cookie. Spread 1/3 of the cheese stick mix on the cookie. Sprinkle again with caramelized pecans. Spread a last layer of cheese stick mix and freeze for 30 minutes. Remove the frozen desert from the mould by running warm water over it.


  • Top the bûchette with the candied quince and syrup. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Decorate the plates with caramelized pecans, candied quince and the remaining syrup. Serve cool.
