Pear and Lustenberger Cheese Tarts

Pear tarts with Lustenberger 1862 cheese are an artful and surprising creation. This tender cheese melts delicately and gives the pears a slightly tangy flavor. These tarts are great as a dessert, daytime snack, or appetizer. Plus, they're easy and quick to prepare.
