Savory Pear Tart

Pear Tart with Gorgonzola and Walnuts

A very sweet friend gave me the freshest walnuts from a friends walnut farm,
I have never tasted walnuts so delicious.
I knew I had to put them in something delicious, before I ate them all by themselves.
I had some ripe pears just waiting to be put in too.
I sauted the pear with butter and added the walnuts,
then placed it on puff pastry and added crumbled Gorgonzola on top and baked it.
Truly it was savory and what a great flavor combination.


  1. Diane, I love your photography, I love pears, and I love the idea of pears with walnuts and gorgonzola. YUM!

  2. I can't think of a better combination than this! I often have all 3 ingredients in salads. 🙂

  3. I think I have to quit reading your blog in the mornings before I've had my breakfast. But… you do warn us not to read your blog if we're hungry! Ha!

    So yummy looking ~ I shall go have my bowl of bran flakes now… 🙁
