I made these last year as a Thanksgiving appetizer and everyone loved them. Instead of putting the pears in the goat cheese mix though, I put individual pear slices in the bottom of each mini-tart that I cut out and baked in a mini-muffin pan. I also garnish them with fresh thyme.

This was an easy, unique dish. I made this for a potluck luncheon with the champaigne salad (although I used a different recipe for that) and got rave reviews all around. I did use canned pears instead of fresh because I could not find any fresh ones worth. It ended up saving time and money though. I also used fresh thyme which I had on hand and think made a big difference.
