My favorite is bleu cheese/pear tart....now I am hungry!
Take puff pasty and cut into circles. I wrapped a rolled border around the edge.
Mix together mascarpone and blue cheese to taste and dot the circle.
layer thin pear slices in a circle and egg wash the rim, bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Remove and add pine nuts and fresh thyme, continue baking another 8-15 minutes, keeping a close eye on the pastry. Remove and drizzle with honey.

I agree, and besides, RIPE melon has a much shorter season where I live. Luscious pears are available from right now all the way up to spring.

Same here. The pears are available year round here and always so good and taste so good. We had some at noon todayI sliced them and spread some tiramisu or coffee flavored mascarpone on them and then wrapped a thin slice of prosciutto around it it was so good.That was my lunch filled the bill
