This hors d'oeuvre would pair wonderfully with a berry-red wine, port or sherry. Or try serving them as a first course with a winter salad. Enjoy!
Pear and Blue Cheese Hors d'oeuvres
- 4 Effie's Oatcakes or Nutcakes, cut in half
- 3 oz. Blue Cheese or Gorgonzola
- 2 T. heavy cream
- 2-3 fresh pear, stemmed and sliced in 8
- 1 T. chopped fresh Italian parsley or chervil or chives
Pre-heat the broiler on high.
In a small bowl combine the blue cheese and heavy cream. Use a sturdy rubber spatula or small metal spoon to blend the cream into the cheese, making a smooth spread.
Place the oatcakes or nutcakes on a baking pan and top each one with some blue cheese spread. Top the cheese with a pear slice slice. Place the sheet pan under the broiler for 15-30 seconds. Use a metal tong to rotate the pan as needed, making sure the pears and cheese turn bubbly.
Top the fig hors d’oeuvres with the fresh chopped herbs and serve.
