Peel the pears and slice them lengthwise.

Beat the egg whites until stiff.

Work the butter with the sugar and the egg yolks for at least 10 minutes , then add the flour, the amaretti and the glass of milk.

 Divide the mixture into two halves and add the cocoa powder to one half.

 Pour the cocoa one in a 20 cm round tin covered with baking foil and add the other half of dough.
Above place the pears.
