After two cheese recipe posts, it gets clear how much I love cheese. I could not stop sharing this delicious appetizer that will make you look like a pro!
1 piece of brie cheese. You may also use camembert cheese.
1 large pear, small diced.
2 tbsp. butter
fresh rosemary, chopped
1 oz. brandy.
2 to 3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar.
1 tbsp. raw honey
salt and pepper to taste
Melt butter over medium heat until it'is golden brown, then add pears and allow to cook for 3 minutes. Add brandy, rosemary, salt and pepper. Remove from heat. Reserve for later.
In the same pan add balsamic vinegar and honey. Simmer. Be careful with it because it burns really fast. Remove from heat.
Cut brie in half. Top the bottom half with the pear mix, then place the top layer and repeat. Finish with the sauce all over the cheese and garnish with more fresh rosemary.
Tip! Take out the Brie from the refrigerator about 1 hour before serving.
