  • Cut bread in half crosswise, making fingers that are about 3 by 1 1/2 inches. Transfer bread fingers to a baking sheet; toast in oven until light golden on each side, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven.

  • Spread 1 heaping teaspoon cheese mixture on each bread finger. Top with a pear slice; garnish with pecan slices. Serve at room temperature.

Will pears turn brown if left sliced for more than a few minutes? Any suggestions on preserving their color (maybe lemon juice)?
