In skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add shallot; cook, stirring, until golden, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in maple syrup and rosemary. Add pear slices to skillet; cook, turning gently halfway through, until glazed, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place Brie in ovenproof dish; arrange pear slices over top. Pour syrup and shallot over pears, using spatula to scrape up any browned bits from bottom of skillet. Sprinkle almonds over top. Bake until cheese is slightly melted, 10 to 15 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
