These were interesting to say the least! I am not a big fan of "stinky" cheeses (mmm give me Mango Brie any day of the week!), but I loved the idea of mixed flavors! I used premade phyllo shells (BOGO free sale) and doubled the recipe. I think the blue cheese was a bit strong for the pear, I followed in other reviewer's footsteps and added a drizzle of honey to them. It did the trick!Keep an eye on the tarts and make sure to take them out at 15 minutes, they singe easily. Mine are extra crispy as I was trying to overcompensate for an underripe pear. Using a very ripe pear may help with the sweetness as well.
The taste is growing on me, they might not make it to Thanksgiving at the folk's tomorrow...
