1 tablespoon butter

1 ripe pear, peeled, cored, and sliced thinly (If a ripe pear cannot be found, saute slices in a tablespoon of butter over medium heat for 5 minutes, or until tender. Or use canned pears.)

3 ounces Stilton, sliced or crumbled finely

4 slices raisin bread (ideally, cinnamon raisin)


  1. Divide ingredients in half and assemble two pear-and-Stilton "sandwiches".
  2. Melt butter in a saute pan over medium-low heat.
  3. When butter is fully melted, place both sandwiches in pan, cover, and cook for 2 minutes per side, or until browned like a conventional grilled-cheese sandwich. Keep a watchful eye on the pan when cooking the dessertwich; raisin bread will begin to burn only moments after it is browned to perfection.
  4. Remove from pan and slice each sandwich diagonally into 4 triangles. Serve immediately (ideally with Port).
