In a medium saucepan combine pears, sweetener, spices, and butter. Cook on medium heat until the pears start to become tender. Cool slightly.

Spread the pear layer over the cooled base and then top with the crumbled blue cheese and pecans.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.

Transfer to a wire rack and let cool to room temperature, then sprinkle with the fresh thyme leaves, cut in 16 servings, and serve.
