Warm Gorgonzola Turnovers with Caramelized Pears

Times

  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 15 min
  • Ready Time : 30 min

Servings

Ingredients

  • 12 6 " x 6" squares of Puff pastry, 1/8-inch thick
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 6 ounces crumbled Gorgonzola
  • 6 Bosc or Bartlett Pears
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Fresh thyme sprigs or basil chiffonade garnish

Directions

Preparation

  1. Place pastry squares on a parchment lined baking sheet and brush edges of pastry with egg. 
  2. Place 2 tablespoons Gorgonzola in center of each square. Fold opposing corners of the pastry to the center creating a smaller square; pinch to seal and brush top with egg. 
  3. Refrigerate until ready to bake. Bake at 375ºF for about 15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
  4. Peel, core and quarter or halve pears.
  5. Leaving stem end intact, slice into 1/4-inch wedges and gently fan slices. While pastries are baking, heat butter, sugar, salt and pepper in a medium-size skillet. 
  6. Add pears and cook over medium-low heat for 10 –15 minutes, turning once until tender and lightly caramelized. 
  7. (Alternatively, melt butter and gently combine with pears, sugar, salt and pepper; bake pears on pan with pastries. 
  8. Depending on ripeness of pears they may take longer or shorter time to bake than pastries.)
  9. Serve warm pastry, accompanied with half a warm caramelized pear. Garnish with herbs.
