How to Make Savory Sweet Pear Appetizers (5 Minutes, 5 Ingredients)!

During the busy holiday season (and heck, any season for that matter!) I am all about easy food. I am a big fan of simple appetizers that are a mix of different, unexpected flavors. The mix of salty cheese with sweet pears and cinnamon-spiced honey in this recipe is divine!

You’ll need:

  • 1 can pears, in juice
  • 1 baguette
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 4 ounces Gorgonzola
  • Spiced Honey Crème (I love Honey Ridge Farms)

Here’s how to make them:

  1. Slice baguette into 1/4-inch slices and toast in the oven for a few minutes until brown.
  2. Drain pears and slice thin. 
  3. Mix cream cheese and Gorgonzola and spread on toasted baguette slices.
  4. Add a few pear slices and drizzle with honey creme.

Yum, Cheryl Leahy! And so easy! If you didn't have the spiced honey creme, what are good substitutions?

Sounds good! Where has this Spiced Honey Creme been my whole life ?!!?
Elisa Schmitz
Ha, I was thinking the same thing, Dr. Shayna Mancuso! We need a girls' night eating tapas like these and drinking sangria at Cheryl Leahy's house, LOL! :-)
