Ingredients

Directions

1. Use apple corer to remove core from pear. Crosswise cut pear into 1/4-inch-thick rings. In small bowl toss together pear rings and olive oil. Arrange in single layer on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 400degrees F for 27 to 30 minutes or until soft and beginning to brown, turning once after 15 minutes. Set aside.

2. When pears are cool enough to handle, cut each ring into quarters.

3. Spread scant teaspoon of blue cheese on each KEEBLER TOWN HOUSE Original cracker. Top each with pear piece and pecan half.

*NOTE: If you can't find glazed or candied pecan halves at your grocery store, make your own. In small saucepan combine 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons light corn syrup, 1 tablespoon butter and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Bring to boiling over high heat. Stir in 1 1/2 cups pecan halves. Cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Spread in single layer on baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes or until bubbling and browned, stirring once after 7 minutes. Cool completely. Break up. Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.
