    I love this recipe - for those who can't find pear preserves - just buy a can of canned pears - mash and cook down with a bit of sugar until thick like a preserve or compote - I've made this a dozen times or more and it always works like a charm - For parties, when I want to be able to pass the quesadilla as an appetizer - I put the pecans, harvarti and pear mixture all in the tortilla before toasting - cool a minute then cut into serving pieces - for a cheaper version use queso cheese instead of havarti - melts nicely and is pretty good

    So easy and so gourmet tasting; a very elegant appetizer. Like some of the other reviewers, I used apricot preserves because I could not find pear preserves.

    Love Love Love this recipe. I have served it a number of times and it always gets amazing reviews. While I agree the pear preserves are pricey, this recipe totally rocks and I would recommend trying them. Thanks so much for posting.

    This recipe is excellent. Instead of pear preserves, I caramelized onions. It was delicious!

    Everyone absolutely loved this. Had trouble finding the pear preserves, and when I did find it, it was double the price on other preserves available. Would consider using orange marmalade or, as another reviewer said, perhaps apricot presrves or lingonberries.
