  • 1 Sheet of Puff Pastry
  • 1/2 Cup Blue cheese, crumbled
  • 2 Bartlett pears, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 Cup Walnuts
  • 1 Tbsps. Brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp. Flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. Honey


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper.
  • Roll out the puff pastry sheet to even out the pastry. Cut a 1 inch strip from all sides of the pastry. Place that piece of dough right on top of the edge of the remaining pastry creating a border. Brush that border pastry with the beaten egg. That will give a nice golden color when baked. Gently press down so the top piece of dough adheres to the bottom dough when baked.
  • In a food processor or blender, mix the walnuts, sugar and butter until blended.
  • Place the sliced pears, slightly overlapping, on top of the pastry and inside the border. Sprinkle the walnut mixture evenly over the pears. Then, place the crumbled blue cheese on top of the nuts and pears.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is golden brown, the cheese is melted and the pears are warm and heated through and the pastry is fragrant.
  • Remove to a cutting board and cut into large squares and serve drizzled with the honey and sprinkled with the parsley.  Enjoy!
