- Squeeze of lemon juice
- 1 cup diced pears
- 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped plus 1 tablespoon, for garnish
- 1/2 cup Maytag blue cheese, plus 1 tablespoon, for garnish
- Salt and white pepper
- 8 sheets phyllo dough
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- Candied Pears
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Squeeze a little lemon juice over pears to prevent browning. Combine pears, walnuts and blue cheese; season to taste with salt and pepper.
Lay out phyllo sheet and fold in thirds like a letter, lengthwise; brush surface with melted butter. Mound 1/4 of cheese filling at base of folded phyllo sheet and roll up like an eggroll, pinching ends closed to prevent filling from leaking. Brush top with butter and transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining phyllo and filling. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until golden and lightly crisped. Serve with the Candied Pears and a dollop of whipped cream or creme fraiche, if desired.
