Brie Cheese Round
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
and mince the
stirring occasionally until tender, but the pears shouldn't be falling apart.
In a small saucepan, heat two tablespoons of the
Butter (2 Tbsp)
over medium-high heat, until it starts to foam.
Brown Sugar (1 Tbsp)
Balsamic Vinegar (2 Tbsp)
and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes until syrupy. Remove from heat and let pear mixture cool.
Cut the rind from the
Brie Cheese Round (1/4)
and dice the cheese into 1 inch cubes. Wrap the brie chunks in
Prosciutto (5 slices)
and set aside.
Place the remaining
Butter (1/4 cup)
in a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap and microwave in 15 second increments until melted.
Cover your work surface in plastic wrap (this is optional, but it makes cleanup a lot easier). Place one sheet of
Phyllo Dough (15 sheets)
on the work surface. Use a pastry brush to spread melted butter along one half (lengthwise) of the phyllo dough.
Fold the dry portion of the dough over on itself and pat to seal. Place a brie and prosciutto bundle in the lower right corner of the phyllo, leaving about 1" edge on either side".
Spoon a portion of pear compost over the brie and prosciutto. Brush the edges of the phyllo surrounding the brie with butter and fold the pastry diagonally over the filling to form a rectangle.
Continue to brush the top of the wrap with butter and continue folding over and back until the pocket is completely sealed. Brush with extra butter and place on the cookie sheet.
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Arrange on a platter and serve warm with wine and/or cocktails and enjoy!
