    Luckily my hubby and I BOTH love blue. Here's hoping you get to another party soon, my friend. You NEED to make this one, malory.

    Wish I'd seen this in time to make it for a party last weekend! Now I'll have to wait for another party, because I'm the only one in my family who likes blue cheese. I like it enough for all of them, though, and this sounds worth waiting for!

    I don't think there's any "shame" in changing up the nut you use in this, nym! lol We ALL have things we don't care for, don't we? Enjoy it and thanks for the five.

    Love this tart...I'd be using walnuts instead of pine nuts (I'm not fond of the pine nut) But walnuts and blue cheese are a heavenly match in my opinion. Thanks for the post. Have a great day, dear.
