Juicy pear, creamy cheese and flaky-pastry bites look fancy but are truly easy and quick to make. You can also use an apple instead of the pear.

  • Portion size 32 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg puff pastry thawed
  • 8 oz Brie cheese
  • 1 pear
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

Method

On lightly floured surface, roll out half of the pastry into 12- x 8-inch (30 x 20 cm) rectangle; cut in half lengthwise. Cut each half crosswise into quarters; cut each in half diagonally to make triangles.

Place pastry triangles on parchment paper?lined baking sheet; pierce all over with fork. Bake in centre of 375°F (190°C) oven for 10 minutes or until golden and puffed. Let cool on rack. Repeat with remaining pastry. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container at room temperature for up to 24 hours.)

Meanwhile, cut cheese into 32 thin slices. Quarter pear lengthwise, removing core; cut each quarter lengthwise into 8 thin strips. Place 1 piece of cheese on each pastry triangle; top with pear strip.

In small bowl, combine lemon juice, oil and thyme; brush over pear and cheese. Bake for about 5 minutes or until cheese starts to melt.
