Pear and Goat Cheese Bites

Easily served as a elegant starter — or as a main dish alongside a salad of winter greens — this Pear and Goat Cheese Bites recipe combines warm, crispy phyllo, an indulgent filling, and a drizzle of hot honey. Beware! You’ll have trouble limiting yourself to just one. We recommend a glass of chilled mineral-inflected rosé as a companion to this lovely dish.

Pear and Goat Cheese Bites Recipe


2 Bartlett pears
10 phyllo dough sheets
3 oz goat cheese
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 tbsp hot honey


  1. Peel and deseed the pears and thinly slice.
  2. Place all 10 of the phyllo sheets together on a baking sheet or in an ovenproof baking pan.
  3. Spread goat cheese onto phyllo and top with pears. Fold to cover pears, tuck ends under, and pour over melted butter.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool, cut into desired-size pieces, and drizzle with hot honey.
