    Krsi Sue's Note:

    Fall time is pear time. Such a nice blend of flavors to warm your tummy. You may top this off with crumbled feta cheese, or blue cheese.

      This is delicious! I did not have blue cheese, so I used a very light tasting white cheese. I love the simple prep of this dish.
      I had some wondterful pears and I had cooked chicken in the freezer.
      I wish I had remembered to try a little Kraft Poppy Seed dressing
      with the turnovers.But I will the next time I prepare this recipe.
      Thanks for posting Krsi!
