gorgonzola-pear toasts

Gorgonzola-Pear Toasts (40 pieces)


* 2 baguettes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
* 2-3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
* 1 8-ounce package cream cheese
* 4 ounces crumbled gorgonzola cheese
* 2 15-ounce cans pear halves drained
* 1/2 cup candied pecans, chopped


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly brush 1 side of each baguette slice with olive oil. Place the slices on a baking sheet and toast 5 to 7 minutes, or just until beginning to brown. Let cool.

Meanwhile, combine the cream cheese and gorgonzola cheese, stirring until well mixed. Drain pear halves and slice thinly. Spread the toasts with the cheese mixture. Top with the pear slices and chopped candied pecans.
