Last Fridays: Blue Cheese and Pear Puff Pastry Bites

Here it is friends: the final Last Fridays of the year. Lillian and I started Last Fridays because we were sick of living at opposite ends of the state and missing out on our old tradition of a regular monthly happy hour. But, since we started it, we’ve had so much fun toasting each month with you.

For December’s Last Fridays, we wanted something you could serve to ring in the New Year and well beyond. So this is it: Blue Cheese and Pear Puff Pastry Bites that I’ve made not once, not twice, but three times in the last week and all to great success. These Blue Cheese and Pear Puff Pastry Bites are a little sweet, salty, and seriously addictive. And to go with it, Lillian’s pouring this cocktail with an edge (and oh-so aptly named for the end of the year), The Bitter-Sweet Sparkler.

So, no matter how you plan on ringing in the New Year (though I highly recommend including these Blue Cheese and Pear Puff Pastry Bites in your plans), have a great night and cheers to more fun times together in 2014!
