IN PUFF PASTRY WITH PORT
WINE REDUCTION SAUCE
For Port Wine Reduction 1 quart Port Wine 1 cup chopped basic
mirepoix 1 cup crumbled Maytag Blue Cheese 1 cup chopped roasted
walnuts 4 poached pears, cored from the bottom leaving the stem
intact 2 prepared puff pastry sheets 8 x 10 inches, split in half Egg
wash--1 egg mixed with 1 teaspoon water
1/2 cup roasted walnut pieces
1/2 cup snipped chives
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For Port Wine Reduction: Combine the
port with the mirepoix and reduce by 2/3 to a syrup consistency,about
6 to 8 minutes.
For stuffed pears: Combine the blue cheese and walnuts together.
Stuff each pear with 1/4 of the mixture. Place a pear in the center
of the halved puff pastry sheet and wrap like a bundle, trimming any
excess, thus leaving the shape of the pear evident. Brush each pear
with the egg wash and bake until golden, about 8-10 minutes.
To assemble, place the pear in the center of the plate, drizzle with
the Port Wine Reduction, sprinkle with the walnuts and chives.
