    This recipe works best with a sharp crumbly blue cheese like Maytag, Roquefort or Cabrales.

      Made these over the weekend and found then quite tasty. I changed a couple things. I doubled the amount of blue cheese and used only one pear. I used cream cheese instead of mascarpone because the latter is so expensive. Also, I changed the order of directions a bit because I wanted the cheese to be melted and I didn't want the bread to be too crunchy. I spread the baguette slice with the cream cheese and topped it with the pear/blue mixture before putting it in the oven, and then simply warmed it up until the cheese melted. Finally, I think next time I would use basil instead of parsley. I think basil would be better suited to the other flavors in this dish.

      Fantastic! I made these to go with our Champagne and they were perfect. Delish! They are easy to make and everyone loved them. What's not to love with pears and cheese?

      WOW -- I can't give this enough stars! I made this to share with coworkers today for lunch and it was incredible. Easy to make, great to look at and wonderful to devour. I didn't get a chance to take a picture because they were gone too fast. This is something I will be making quite often.
