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
1  
rosemary, fresh (sprig)
   
salt
   
black pepper

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375F. Place garlic on baking sheet with skin on, and roast 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.
