   Peel and slice pears, drain raspberries if tinned, and scoop out passion
   fruit.  Place fruit in large trifle bowl and add an ample quantity of
   sherry. Leave for twenty-four hours to soak in the refrigerator.
   
   Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Cream butter and sugar until light and
   fluffy. Add eggs and about 2 T of flour and beat. Fold in rest of flour.
   Bake in 7-inch square tin for 25-30 mins until brown. Let cool. Slice into
   fingers and arrange on top of fruit. More sherry may be added at this
   point.
   
   Pour one large glass of sherry.  Mix eggs and add all ingredients to small
   bowl.  Place bowl in pan of simmering water.  Stir continuously with wooden
   spoon, sipping sherry, until custard thickens.  This takes about ten
   minutes. Pour custard on top of sponge. Chill in fridge. Whip cream until
   stiff and smooth over top of custard. Arrange almonds decoratively.
