Apps in a Snap: Pear & Cheese Crisps
Take pitas to a whole new level with this party snack. Creamy blue cheese and pear combine for a flavor-packed, easy appetizer.
-If you like cheese and crackers, you're gonna love this kicked up version that you uses fresh pears, creamy blue cheese and crispy pita wedges. Start by making your pita chips. This is really easy using store bought pita breads. Just flip them open, then cut each half into 6 wedges. Using a pastry brush, brush each with a light coating of olive oil. Then remove them over into a rim baking sheet. Now get to work on your pears. Cut them in half. Then use a melon baller to scoop out the centers. Finally, place them into thin pieces. Top each pita wedge with 2 slices of pears, sprinkle on one cup of crumble blue cheese which I love because it has a sharp flavor and creamy texture. And one tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary.. Now just bake these off in a 425 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Arrange the pitas on a pretty serving platter then just watch them disappear.
