Pear with Cranberry Sauce and Blue Cheese Dessert

Posted in: Desserts,


Desserts have one role to play at the dinner table, and that is to satisfy our sweet tooth.  Once in a while, a dessert comes along that challenges our taste buds.  Here it is with the combination of blue cheese and cranberry sauce. At first this sounded highly unusual, however the taste is unbelievably addictive. 

Lightly boiling or baking the pear, will soften it. Then drizzle with maple syrup, cover with blue cheese and home made cranberry sauce and enjoy. This combination is divine.
