Preparation -- 10 minutes

PRE-HEAT the oven to 190 degrees celsius or 375 degrees Fahrenheit. PEEL the pears and chop them into small cubes, make sure the pieces aren't too big otherwise the filo dough won't close nicely.

CHOP the blue cheese into small pieces as well and COMBINE the chopped cheese, pears and 1 teaspoon nutmeg.
