  • 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Dough Sheet
  • 1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 oz crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh pear
  • Fresh thyme leaves for garnish


  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll dough onto work surface. Cut dough into 15 squares. Gently press 1 square in bottom and up side of each of 12 ungreased mini muffin cups, shaping edges to form rims 1/4-inch high.
  • 2
    Bake 8 - 9 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool cups in pan 4 minutes.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix cream cheese and gorgonzola with fork until well combined. Stir in chopped pear.
  • 4
    When cups are completely cool, fill each with 1 rounded tablespoon cheese-pear mixture. Garnish each cup with fresh thyme. Serve immediately.

  • You can substitute any of your favorite blue cheese for the gorgonzola.
  • Don’t like very strong flavors? Use Gorgonzola dolce—a much “sweeter” and milder version of Gorgonzola cheese.
  • Don’t have fresh thyme? Use a small sliver of pear for the garnish.
