      I roasted the pears as directed in the recipe.Like Rita, I added some brown sugar and also some fresh ground nutmeg to the pears before roasting. Then I followed the recipe and everybody LOVED it!!! They ate every last bite! Thanks, Leslie, for a GREAT, simple appetizer!!

      I sauteed the pears in a pan with butter then topped the brie with a touch of brown sugar. To die for! Merci. Made for ZWT5

      Delicious! So easy as well. I was going to leave the thyme off but glad i didn't, found some lemon thyme in the garden and it really gave a wonderful extra aroma..even more than flavor, so my suggestion is definitely use fresh thyme.
