  • Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Place the pears in the skillet and cook, stirring for 1 minute to soften slightly.
  • Sprinkle the sugar over the pears and let cook, stirring until they are completely soft, 2 minutes longer.
  • Remove skillet from heat.
  • Place 1 teaspoon of the pears and their juice in each phyllo shell.
  • Top with a cube of blue cheese.
  • Bake the tartlets until the cheese melts and the shells are crisp and golden brown 7 to 8 minutes.
  • (You can also sprinkle finely chopped walnuts over tartlets before baking if desired).
