Description

This is delicious, but beware, it disappears quickly! Try different variations with caramel and toasted pecans or cranberries and herbs. Mix it up with a combination of sweet, salty, and savory toppings for full flavor.

Ingredients

8 ounces
cheese, brie (wheel)
2 tablespoons
honey
1  
pear, Asian (sliced)
3 cloves
garlic (3-5 gloves)
1  
rosemary, fresh (sprig)
   
salt
   
black pepper

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375F. Roast garlic cloves for 10 minutes, until aromatic. Remove from oven and set aside.

Place brie on a baking sheet or in a baking dish. Spread honey on top of brie round. Slice the pear and garlic; assemble on top of honey in any pattern that you like. Season with salt and pepper. Place in oven and bake for 3-4 minutes. Remove from oven, add rosemary on top, and bake for 2-3 minutes more, taking care not to burn the rosemary. You’ll want the cheese to be warm and gooey. Serve immediately and enjoy with crackers or toasted bread.
