Description

Easy, delicious and elegant appetizer for special occasions. You only need 5 ingredients and 20 minutes to make it!

Ingredients

  • 3  Ripe But Not Too Soft Pears, Such As Concorde Or Green Anjou
  • 1 Tablespoon Liquid Honey, Plus More To Serve
  • 4 sprigs Thyme
  • 6 teaspoons Soft Blue Cheese Like Gorgonzola
  • 6  Halved Walnuts, To Garnish
  • Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper, To Taste

Preparation

Preheat oven to 200°C or 390°F. Cut pears in halves and scoop the seeds with a teaspoon or a melon baller. Place the halves open-faced on a baking dish and drizzle with liquid honey. Place thyme on top and bake for 10 minutes or until flesh is soft enough when pierced with a fork. Let cool.

Place a teaspoon of soft gorgonzola or any other blue cheese into each pear boat. Garnish with walnuts and drizzle with more honey if desired. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

You can serve these baked pears both warm and cold. If you don’t want your cheese to melt, wait until the pears are cooled down completely before stuffing them with blue cheese. Enjoy!

This sounds like a perfect end to a meal especially if you are dieting (which most of us are this time of year). It helps to have something special to keep you on the straight and narrow. My only suggestion is to toast the walnuts. It gives them more flavor.
