Blue Cheese Cranberry Pear Toasts

Not sure where this came from, it is great for this time of year when you always need an appetizer.

24 – 1/2 inch thick slices French bread
cooking spray
4 oz cream cheese
4 oz blue cheese
1/4 c pecans
1/4 c dried cranberries
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 Bosc pear, very thinly sliced
Spray both sides of the bread slices with the cooking spray. Arrange bread slices on a large baking sheet and bake until lightly toasted, about 7 minutes. In a small food processor combine the cream cheese, blue cheese, pecans, cranberries and cayenne pepper; process until just combined, but not smooth. Spread the cheese mixture onto one side of the toasts. Arrange a thin slice of pear on each toast. Bake at 425 for 5-6 minutes or until lightly browned. Yield: 24 toasts
