Pear and Gorgonzola Puff Pastry is an easy appetizer that only takes 25 minutes to make! Sweet, savory and perfect to pair with champagne or wine. The secret is using frozen puff pastry to make quick work of these during the busy holiday season.



1 sheet Puff Pastry

2–3 Comice Pears (you can also use Bartlett Pears)

1/2 cup Gorgonzola Cheese

1/4 cup Chopped Pecans

Extra Virgin Olive Oil, to drizzle


Fresh Thyme

  1. Preheat oven to 425˚ F.
  2. Slice pears lengthwise using a knife or a mandolin. Slice thinly then cut in half. Roll a sheet of puff pastry flat. Cut into 6 equal-sized rectangles. Add about 1-2 Tbsp of Gorgonzola cheese to each rectangle. Add 3-4 halved pears to the puff pastry wedging between the Gorgonzola cheese so that the pears lay flat. Sprinkle with chopped pecans and olive oil and bake for 15 minutes.
  3. Drizzle with honey and then sprinkle with fresh thyme.
