  • Summary

    Gorgonzola dolce, or dolcelatte, is a creamy, slightly sweet blue cheese. Look for it in specialty shops. If you can't find it, try regular Gorgonzola, which will have a richer flavor.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/4 teaspoons granulated sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
    • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
    • 4 ripe red Bartlett pears, halved lengthwise, cored, and cut into wedges
    • 8 ounces Gorgonzola dolce, room temperature
