The recipe Puff Pastry Baked Brie with Pears is a simple, delicious, and elegant appetizer recipe that friends and family will go crazy for when you serve it at your next party. The easy appetizer recipe has a rich pear filling made with sherry, brown sugar, and nutmeg. This mixture gives the pears a vibrant and sweeter flavor. The pear mixture is nicely complemented by the brie placed on top.

The puff pastry is wrapped around this luscious bundle of fruit and cheese. After baking, the pastry is wonderfully flaky and the cheese begins to melt atop the sweet pear mixture. This is the perfect dish to serve at Christmas or a holiday party either as an appetizer or a dessert. Not only is it simple to make, but it tastes decadent.
