A cheese tray is always a nice things to have for your special Parisian fling. This is a fruit and cheese tray with a twist.
3 ripe pears
1 round creamy swiss cheese
1 Tbs cream cheese
1/4 cup pecans
2 Tbs butter
1 Tbs sugar
Allow swiss cheese spread and cream cheese to soften at room temperature. Cream together and set aside. In a pan, melt butter and sugar. Stir in chopped pecans, toast lightly. Slice pears, spread each with swiss cheese and sprinkle with nuts.
*if it is going to be awhile before you serve- soak the pear slices in water with lemon juice to prevent browning.
A while back The Winemaker's Wife at Bonfire Vineyards had a contest for naming their wines. I suggested Slow Burn for their new Port... and this is my prize!
I have some pears still in the fridge... I am planning to use my port to poach some pears for a special dessert. Get the camera ready (and some spoons!)
Y'all stay tuned!
