12 servings (serving size: 2 filled endive leaves)

The classic combination of pears, blue cheese, and walnuts yields a nice appetizer that comes together quickly. The filling mixture is best if made just before serving.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add pear and sugar to pan; sauté 2 minutes or until tender. Cool.

Step 2

Place pear mixture, blue cheese, walnuts, and salt in a bowl; stir gently to combine. Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons pear mixture into each endive leaf. Arrange leaves on a platter; sprinkle evenly with parsley.

Wow, so good! And elegant. I used turbinado sugar and had toasted pine nuts since they were on hand. They were great. Black pepper makes a nice addition. Yum!

This appetizer always gets rave reviews from our friends. It is easy and delicious. We substitute Splenda for the sugar to save a few more calories and cannot taste any difference.
