|Stuffed Pears with Blue Cheese|
2 baby Bartlett pears
1 Tablespoon of butter
2 Tablespoons good quality blue cheese
2 Tablespoons whipped cream cheese
1/4 cup walnuts, toasted and lightly chopped
1/4 cup quality maple syrup
Wash pears, slice in half and remove core and stem.
In a saute pan over medium heat, heat butter and put pears cut side down, saute until browned (about 5 minutes), turn over, cook another 2 minutes.
Mix blue cheese and cream cheese together.
Using tongs, take pears out of pan, place on serving dish. If needed, to make pears lay flat, cut a small slice from bottom.
Stuff with cheese. Sprinkle with walnuts and drizzle with maple syrup.
