Updated October 25, 2009

Ingredients

  • 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet
  • 1 pear, peeled, finely chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne), if desired
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 round (8 oz) Brie cheese, rind removed, cut into 24 (1/2-inch) chunks
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Grease or spray 24 mini muffin cups. Unroll dough on work surface; press into 12x8-inch rectangle. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows to make 24 squares. Gently press squares into mini muffin cups (dough will not completely cover inside of cup; do not press too much).
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix pear, brown sugar, red pepper and honey. Place 1 cheese chunk in each cup. Top with 1 heaping teaspoon pear mixture. Sprinkle with pecans.
  • 3
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until edges are deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes; remove from muffin pans. Serve warm.

  • Serve these bites warm, right out of the oven, while the Brie cheese is soft.
