Looking for a beautiful yet easy recipe to impress weekend guests? This galette fits the bill! A buttery crust encases sweet pears that are complemented by slightly salty and creamy Dragon’s Breath Blue Cheese. Walnuts add crunch, while a drizzle of honey adds a touch of sweetness.

2 premade deep dish pie crusts, thawed OR The Messy Baker’s “No Fail Pastry
4 tbsp Dutchman’s Dragon’s Breath Blue, divided
3 ripe pears, sliced, divided
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, divided
2 tbsp honey, divided
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tsp raw sugar, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
