    55 mins

    2 hrs


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir the onions into the butter, and cook until the onions have softened and caramelized to a deep, golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Stir frequently as the onions cook to keep them from burning. Once done, season with salt and pepper, and set aside to cool.
  3. Use a sharp knife to cut each sheet of puff pastry into 9 squares. Cut each square in half diagonally to yield 36 triangles. Place the triangles onto the prepared baking sheets, and top with the caramelized onions, pears, and 1 teaspoon of blue cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the pastry is puffed and golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature before serving.

I was nervous to experiment with a new dish for our party... especially because there had only been 2 reviews... but it was SO good!! Everyone loved them! The pear had such a delicate flavor you could hardly tell it was there, I used d'anjou pears, I don't know if another kind would taste different. Don't skimp on the cheese... I cooked up 4 sweet onions (3 inches in diameter), and had about a cup left over. Three onions would have done just fine.

I chose to make this appetizer because I LOVE blue cheese, I LOVE pears and I most especially LOVE carmelized onions. I made this exactly as written except using premade phyllo cups. I'm glad I did as it was a time saver. The filling was enough to fill 45 cups with some pear left over. They smelled so good when I took them out of the oven. Unfortunately, the teaspoon of blue cheese per pastry was a bit heavy handed. I liked them okay, but they were not the hit of my party as I had hoped they would be. :(

I really liked these, but the whole process was a little strange. The flavor was good, and the guests ate them up, but the next time I make them I will use the puff pastry cups. I tried it both as written in the directions and as one reviewer mentioned stuffing the triangles. both ways didn't get enough filling for me and I ended up with huge bites of puff pastry with only the middle bite with filling. I would highly recommend this recipe, and I will make it again, just using the cups instead.

This recipe came out amazing! I did like the previous review and put the items inside the triangles. It was a hit with the group I made it for and I would definitely make it again! I might next time add a little balsamic vinegar for a bit more flavor, though.

Absolutely delicious!! 10 stars from me and my mom! I folded the pastry over and made triangles stuffed with the onions,pears and blue cheese. What an amazing combo of flavors. Will most definately make again! Thanks!

These were great! Because I am lazy, I used frozen Fillo *cups* instead of fussing w/the puff pastry triangles. So easy and so good. I filled each cup w/a little caramelized onion, finely diced pear, and blue cheese, then baked at 350 for 3-5 minutes. A great amuse bouche I will serve regularly...quick, economical, and quite tasty! THANKS!

ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! The pear has such a subtle flavor that the combination with onions and blue cheese make the perfect compliment. These little pastries will not last long and they reheat very well.

Devine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Had to make another batch for a party so -I took the tip of using the cups and made double! Just saute the pears with the onion as the cooking time for the cups is only 3-5 minutes max! So great thank you pj.
