I made this as an appetizer on Easter and it was good enough for us to eat as "dessert" earlier this week. It takes literally 10 minutes to pull together:
Brie and Pear Galette
1 Trader Joe's Pie Crust, thawed
4 oz. Brie (rind removed), cubed (I used a little more)
1 pear, thinly sliced (I prefer a large pear)
1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
fresh ground black pepper
Preheat over to 375 degrees. Place the pie dough on a baking sheet and scatter half the Brie over the center, leaving the edges clean. Arrange the sliced pears on top of the Brie. Scatter the pecans on top, and then add the remaining Brie. Fold the edges of the dough in to create a "picture frame" around the filling leaving the center exposed. Grind a little black pepper over the filling and bake 20-25 minutes, until the crust is golden (I had to bake mine 25-27 mins but that might be my oven). Cut into wedges or squares to serve. Serves 4-6.
I wish my food photos were as attractive as the Pioneer Woman's.
The spotted cookie sheet doesn't help....
