Pear Bites for Holiday Appetizers

Posted on by Jennie

We made these originally circa 2013, and haven’t stopped making them since. I made them last weekend for our holiday party. This time of year, everyone is going to parties they need to cart food too, and let’s be real – it’s not that good for you, right? Well, these at least FEEL healthy, but still holiday-y enough to pass.

For parties, we are especially fond of dishes that require limited assembly and no actual cooking. We found these Pears with Blue Cheese and Prosciutto on Real Simple and it was a done deal. We had no real choice but to make and devour them.

Let me tell you why you should make these right now. First off, they were every bit as delicious as they look like they would be. The folks at Real Simple know how to write a recipe, even if it only has 5 ingredients. Which brings me to my next point. It has 5 ingredients, folks. Five. There is a slight art to wrapping the pears in the right amount of prosciutto and spooning out the blue cheese crumbles, (we use goat cheese sometimes, too) but basically you could just mash these 5 ingredients together and end up with something that is the same amount of delicious.

One word to the wise. Cut your pears into fairly small slices – maybe 1/2 inch at the thickest part of your slice – otherwise these pear bites will be much too large for any human to bite! Take these to your next fancy party and amaze everyone with your artful prosciutto wrapping and blue cheese crumbling skills. Let us know which no-bake recipes are a hit at your holiday parties this year!
