Apples tend to take center stage when it comes to fall and holiday recipes. Pears deserve a chance at the spotlight, don’t you think? For this recipe, choose your favorite variety and what’s almost ripe. Overly ripe pears will become mush in the oven. Here, I used Bartlett and Starkrimson pears. One dynamic duo if I say so myself.

Getting started…

Get this flatbread party started with room temperature brie to spread over the crust. Top with shallots and sprinkle the rosemary over for a solid base of mouthwatering flavor. I like lining a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment to keep clean-up a breeze!

The crust acts as a canvas for creativity when it comes to designing your flatbread. Arrange the pear slices, prosciutto strips, and walnuts to your culinary liking!

The honey drizzle brings all that caramelized flavor home unapologetically. The recipe is simply a starting point. Below are substitution suggestions if you want to change things up a bit.

Key Ingredients & Substitutions

Fruit – Not a huge pear fan? Sub sliced apples, or partially cooked sweet potato and butternut squash

Cheese – Great cheese substitutions for brie are goat, gruyere, and creamy gorgonzola

Meat – Missing prosciutto? Brown some bacon, pancetta, or simply tear up thinly sliced ham

Veggies – Easily replace shallots with an obvious onion, or sliced mushrooms and bell peppers

Crunch – Caramelized walnuts added an awesome crunch as would pecans or cashews

Glaze – For sweetness, use maple syrup or agave if you don’t have honey

Hope you enjoy! Cheers to fall!! xo, Kim

Ingredients

  • 1 large about 14×5 inches store-bought flatbread, or 2 smaller ones
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 ounces brie cheese room temperature, rind removed
  • ¼ cup shallots thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary finely chopped, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons honey divided
  • 2-3 pears cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto torn into strips
  • ¼ cup caramelized or roasted walnuts chopped
  • Freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400˚F. Place flatbread onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Brush the top with a thin coating of olive oil. Bake for 5 minutes to crisp the crust.
  • Remove flatbread from the oven and maintain oven temperature. Dollop the brie around on the flatbread and spread as evenly as you can. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
  • Spread the shallots over the brie. Sprinkle with chopped rosemary. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of honey.
  • Arrange pear slices as desired. Top with prosciutto and chopped walnuts. Drizzle with remaining honey. Season with freshly ground pepper, to taste.
  • Bake flatbreads 10-12 minutes until pears soften, cheese melts, and crust edges are golden brown. Let cool slightly.
  • Garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs and additional honey, as desired. Serve immediately.
