    AmandaInOz's Note:

    We often serve this after dinner in place of a cheese course. I don't remember for certain, but I think it's a Martha recipe.

      I made this to serve as the ending course of a ribeye steak dinner. It definitely deserved their spot on the menu! The flavors here pair perfectly and it was the perfect ending to our meal! Easy & delicious! Discovered during Fall '09 Pick A Chef.

      OVER THE TOP DELICIOUS! The flavor combination in this dish is simply divine, plus it's gorgeous on the plate. Hubby absolutely loved it, in fact I've already made it twice. Thanks for a true keeper Amanda. Edited to say that OF THE 350 RECIPES I REVIEWED IN 2008, THIS HAS GONE INTO MY TOP 20 FAVORITES COOKBOOK.

      I'd give you 100 STARS if I could. I absolutely loved this and will make it again. The nuts were FABULOUS in themselves and then the combo of the pears and the cheese with the nuts was perfection. I topped ours off with a tad bit of a grapefruit vinaigrette. Made for Veg*n Tag #2, Sept 2008. THANKS!
