Baby Cheesecakes with Toffee Pears

Ingredients
3/4
cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1/4
cup finely chopped walnuts
1/4
cup packed brown sugar
3
tablespoons butter, melted
1
8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1
egg
1/2
cup crumbled blue cheese (2 ounces)
1/4
cup sour cream
2
tablespoons butter
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
2
tablespoons whipping cream
4
cups sliced pears (4 medium)
1/4
teaspoon vanilla
1/4
cup broken walnuts, toasted
 
Crumbled blue cheese
 
Orange peel curls (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line eight 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with foil or paper bake cups, or lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. For crust, in a small bowl stir together oats, the 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, the 1/4 cup brown sugar, and the 3 tablespoons melted butter. Spoon about 2 rounded tablespoons of oat mixture into each prepared muffin cup. Using the bottom of a narrow glass, press down lightly. Bake about 8 minutes or until light brown. Cool slightly on a wire rack. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
  3. For filling, in a medium bowl beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add egg; beat just until combined. Stir in the 1/2 cup blue cheese and the sour cream.
  4. Spoon 1 well-rounded tablespoon of filling into each muffin cup. Bake about 20 minutes or until slightly puffed and set. Cool about 30 minutes. Remove from muffin cups. Place on a tray, cover, and chill for 2 to 24 hours. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.
  5. For toffee pears, in a large skillet melt the 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add the 1/2 cup brown sugar and the cream. Cook and stir until bubbly; add pears. Cook about 5 minutes or until pears are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Cool slightly.
  6. To serve, remove foil or paper liners from cheesecakes. Place cheesecakes in eight dessert dishes. Spoon pear mixture around cheesecakes. Sprinkle with the 1/4 cup toasted walnuts and additional blue cheese. If desired, garnish with orange peel curls.
