Ingredients

  • 3 ripe but not too soft pears, e.g. Concorde or Green Anjou
  • 1 tablespoon liquid honey + more to serve
  • 4 sprigs thyme
  • 6 teaspoons soft blue cheese like gorgonzola
  • 6 halves walnuts, to garnish
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200 °C or 390 °F. Cut pears in halves and scoop the seeds with a teaspoon or a melon baller . Place the halves open-faced on a baking dish and drizzle with liquid honey. Place thyme on top and bake for 10 minutes or until the flesh is soft enough when pierced with a fork. Let cool.
  • Place a teaspoon of soft gorgonzola or any other blue cheese into each pear boat. Garnish with walnuts and drizzle with more honey if desired. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. You can serve these baked pears both warm and cold. If you don't want your cheese to melt, wait until the pears are cooled down completely before stuffing them with blue cheese. Enjoy!
