Savory Blue Cheese Cheesecake with Cherry Pear Compote and Cherry Balsamic Glaze
August 05, 2011

I created this recipe for Marianne's So. Cal Allrecipes Beach Bash. It was very well received by the Blue Cheese lovers in the group. Warning - put a sign by this saying "Savory......" Some people thought it was a sweet cheese cake with carmel drizzle. OPPS - Sorry! This can be made ahead of time and refrigerated or even frozen. I said it serves 24 but it actually would probably serve more than that. I plan to make one and freeze in smaller pieces for a elegant appetizer to take to holiday parties. Update- I used my immersion hand blender to mash up the onion fruit mixture - if you don't have one I would consider peeling the pears. Also, as you are adding the eggs to the filling - do so on a slow speed and try to not incorporate too much air. Air in the filling causes the cheesecake to crack.
