Pear, Sage & Blue Cheese Tart

Jennifer Mellencamp


This is a twist on two recipes I've made before: Roasted Vegetabel Tart and Pear & Blue Cheese Crostini. Last year for New Years I made the pear crostini's, and they were a hit. Even people who do not like blue cheese liked them. And after making the roasted vegetable tart for New Years this year, I decided to try the pear crostini, tart style.

This recipe makes 2 tarts.
