Description

Comice pears, with their subtle, very sweet and elusive flavor, are served best when accompanied by most any kind of cheese, particularly soft, ripening cheeses. A small ball of cheese rolled in a layer of nuts is placed in the core of halved Comice pears to make a delicious and elegant presentation. Serve with sherry or a light white wine.

Preparation

Halve and core pears. Brush surface lightly with diluted lemon juice to slow browning. Combine cream cheese and blue cheese until well mixed. 

Form into 1-inch balls and roll in chopped nuts. Place cheese ball into center cavity of each Comice half. Serve with additional cheese selection.
