Pear and Brie Triangles

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.

Preparation

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.
