Here we have a proven flavor combination (pear, walnuts, Gorgonzola, and herbs) in an easy-to-make appetizer that you can prepare with minimal time and effort. What’s not to love?
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, such as Dufour brand, defrosted just before use
2 ripe pears (any variety), unpeeled, cored, and finely diced
4 ounces crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
3/4 cup walnut halves, chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme leaves
Preheat oven to 375° and set a rack to the upper third of the oven. Unwrap the puff pastry and lay on a lightly floured cutting board. Roll out slightly, until smooth. Cut the sheet into 16 squares, then halve those squares diagonally to make 32 triangles. Arrange the triangles on a baking sheet, leaving about 1/2 inch between them.
Sprinkle equal portions of pear in the center of each triangle, then top with equal parts Gorgonzola and walnuts. Season all over with salt and pepper. Bake until puffed and golden, 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle all over with thyme and serve warm.
