I Love This and That: Pear and gorgonzola squares

Pear and gorgonzola squares

Pear just goes nicely with blue cheese and we kick-off the year with pear and gorgonzola squares.  Can be served as a starter, or make them bite size and serve it as canapé's. This recipe makes enough squares to serve about 6 people for starters.

What you need:
500g puff pastry {thawed}
2 tablespoons butter
2 pears pealed and thinly sliced
150g blue cheese {gorgonzola or something similar} crumbed
a hand full of walnuts chopped roughly
1 egg {beaten}

To start off cut the pastry into squares, a little bigger than you are planning on making your squares {about 12 cm squares}

Place the squares on a baking sheet, and fold the sides in {about 1cm}.  Then brush the sides with the beaten egg.

Spread the crumbed blue cheese on the inside of the squares, enough to cover the whole square.

Heat the butter in a frying pan at medium heat and fry the pear in the butter until they start getting soft, then place it on top of the blue cheese.

Sprinkle the walnuts over the pears.

Now bake for 10 to 15 min or until the pastry has puffed and browned

Serve as is, or with salad leaves drizzled with vinaigrette.

Bon appetit!
