    This comes from Anne Byrn's new cookbook "The Dinner Doctor". Quick and Easy and very impressive appetizer. I used Bosc pears and Clemson Blue blue cheese. These were wonderful.

      Lovely flavors. I added already crumbled blue cheese. Next time, I will add even more cheese for more flavor

      I made these for a family gathering and they were a big hit! I skipped the chopped nuts and added sauteed chopped prosciutto to the tops before baking...they were delicious! I made them one day ahead and reheated, as per the instructions-it worked out perfectly!
