Baked Brie With Caramelized Pear

I found it! I truly did. THIS is the perfect starter ever. The flavor of a pear on creamy brie is to die for. You will not have enough. Serve with a toasted baguette or flatbread.

  • 1 x 8 oz. round of double cream Brie
  • 1 tbsp. chopped pistachios, toasted

Caramelizing the Pear

  • 2 tsp. butter
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 1 pear, thinly sliced
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup pear juice
  • 1 tbsp. pear liqueur
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar, packed

In a non-stick skillet, melt the butter of a medium heat, cooking the shallot, pear, salt and pepper until the shallot is cooked (about 5-6 minutes).

Add the pear juice, liqueur, thyme and sugar, bringing to a boil. Stir occasionally until no liquid remains and the pear has softened (again, about 5 minutes). Let cool.


Place on a foil lined pie plate, top with the pear mixture . Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Sprinkle the toasted pistachios over the top.

Serve with toasted baguettes. OG this is sooooo good!
