8 Great Hor D'oeurve recipes: Pears with Blue Cheese and Chives

The sweetness of the pears is a delightful counterpoint to the pungent cheese; a hint of chive adds depth

| December/January 1999

 Makes 18 hors d’oeuvres 

The cheese mixture may be prepared up to five days ahead, but because pears turn brown soon after cutting, the hors d’oeuvres should be served as soon after assembling them as possible.

• 1 to 3 ripe, firm pears, washed and dried
• Juice of 1 lemon in 1/2 cup water
• 1/4 pound Gorgonzola cheese
• 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
• Fresh chives for garnish

1. Cut the pears in half, core, and cut into lengthwise slices 1/3 inch thick. Place the slices in the lemon water to deter browning.



2. In a food processor, puree the cheese until smooth. Add the chopped chives and pulse until just mixed.

3. Drain the pear slices in a colander. Pat them with a tea towel. Top each slice with a teaspoon of cheese puree. Garnish with minced chives and serve immediately.
