Baked Brie With Pear - Dash of Mandi

A holiday party isn’t a holiday party without some cheese. I’m all for a good charcuterie board. I could snack on cheese, meats and crackers all night. I thought this baked brie would be an amazing addition to any charcuterie board or holiday gathering.

It’s packed with winter flavors. The gooey soft baked brie, the maple caramelized pears, candied pecan halves and sweet pomegranate seeds. If that doesn’t scream “happy holidays” – I’m not sure what does.

I love serving this baked brie with caramelized pear with Trader Joe’s raisin rosemary crackers. They go absolutely perfect with it!

What I love most about this recipe is how easy it is to make. Also, love the minimal ingredients. I think everyone could use more simple recipes this time of year. If you’re super busy and need something to bring to a party – this would be perfect for you!
