Cut out an oil-paper in a size of the pot diameter, top it on mulled wine surface, put the lid and leave it for 3 days. Turn sides to the pear few times a day, in order to soak from all sides. If the pears are quite hard, heat up the mulled wine together with the pears and repeat the procedure during all three days.

Shortbread dough: Mix the almond flour, salt, vanilla seeds, sugar powder, baking powder, and flour. Add chopped crème butter, egg yolks and knead a flexible, soft dough. add some flour if needed. Wrap the dough in a plastic bag and keep in fridge overnight. Next morning flatten the dough on 0.3-0.4cm. Cut out 12cm diameter circles and place them in 8cm tartlet pans. Cut the leftovers.
