 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      small         firm ripe pears
    1                    lemon -- cut in half
    2      ounces        imported gorgonzola -- or other high
                         -- quality blue cheese
    2      tablespoons   unsalted butter -- softened
    2      tablespoons   crushed walnuts -- pistachio or pine
                         -- nuts
 
 Carefully peel the pears, leaving the stems attached. Cut in half lengthwise an
 d scoop out the seeds, along with a scant tablespoon of pulp out of each half. 
 Rub with the lemon juice to prevent discoloration. Cream the Gorgonzola and the
  butter together in a small bowl until they are soft and fluffy. Fill the hollo
 ws of the pear halves with the cheese mixture and carefully stick the two halve
 s of the pears back together again. Roll the pears in the crushed nuts, and chi
