Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
To make mini filo cases, place one filo sheet on work surface, keeping the remaining sheets covered with a damp cloth. Brush the sheet with melted butter. Place another sheet on top and brush again with butter. Continue with butter-filo layers until you have used four sheets of filo.
With a sharp knife, cut the stack of filo into 15 equal squares. Gently press squares into mini-muffin tins to make cases. Bake filo cases for 10 to 15 minutes until light golden brown. Cool completely before filling.
Mix together blue cheese, pear and cream. Season to taste with pepper. Spoon mixture into cooled shells.
Bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 15 minutes. Serve warm.
Make the filo cases the night before - simply cool to room temperature and store in an airtight container till the next day.
