In the Kitchen: Pear and Gorgonzola Tart

If you are looking for a great party food idea making tarts using puff pastry is a great idea! I actually had trouble when two pieces of puff pastry thawed in the fridge overnight and became stuck together. I rolled them on a floured surface until I had one large piece of puff pastry. I cut the pastry in half and then rolled it a bit more until it was a large oval shape. I like how rustic and unique this makes your pastry look. You can top these with any topping you like but pear and gorgonzola is delicious! A nice combination of sweet, salty, and tangy.

What you will need

1 pack of puff pastry containing 2 sheets of pastry
small container of gorgonzola crumbles or a small wedge
1 very ripe pear sliced lengthwise
1 cup of walnuts chopped small
2 tbsp raw honey
2 tbsp fresh chopped thyme


  1. Thaw puff pastry the night before. Combine both sheets of puff pastry on a floured surface and roll out. Cut into two and roll out each into ovals.
  2. Bake each pastry on a nonstick baking sheet according to temperature on package for 10 minutes. 
  3. Add pear slices, gorgonzola, walnuts, and a drizzle of honey.
  4. Bake an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the pastry looked fully baked.
  5. Sprinkle with fresh thyme and serve immediately.
