While everyone loves pastry and cheese, the real star of this recipe is the Royal Riviera Pear Butter. This classic pear butter is made with actual Harry & David Pears and perfectly compliments the salty cheese. It also makes a delicious condiment on toast, yogurt, or other recipes. Not to mention, pears and brie go great together, just like in this pear tartlet recipe.
The best thing about this baked Brie is just how easily it comes together. Top the Brie with just a little bit of pear butter, wrap in puff pastry, and pop it in the oven for an flakey, cheesy appetizer everyone will love. While the honey-cinnamon pear topping is delicious, you can also omit that step for an even easier recipe!
Pear Butter Baked Brie
- 1-2 Harry & David Royal Riviera Pears, Sliced
- 2 Tablespoons Butter
- 1 teaspoon Honey
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 Sheet of Frozen Puff Pastry, Thawed
- 1 Tablespoon Harry & David Royal Riviera Pear Butter
- 1 Wheel of Brie
- Egg, beaten for egg wash
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
Lay out puff pastry and roll our creases with a floured rolling pin, then lay the Brie in the center and slice off top rind
Spread pear butter on top of the Brie, then fold corners of pastry in so Brie is completely covered
Brush the pastry with egg wash and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown
While the Brie bakes, combine pears, butter, honey, and cinnamon in a medium saucepan
Cook pears down until they become soft and form a sauce, but still maintain their shape
To serve, spoon pears over the Baked Brie and plate with crackers or baguette crisps. Enjoy!
