Caramelized Pear, Bacon and Brie Bites

 
Happy New Years Eve! I am a huge believer in setting goals and writing them down to help you achieve them! I have goals posted up in my closet that I read every day while getting dressed and it helps me to be able to see them each and every day to help achieve them! 
 
I am also a huge lover of appetizers and party food! When I was trying to develop a recipe for Krusteaz to share for New Years I couldn’t help but think of something bite size! And believe it or not this is my first recipe that I have created using their famous pie crust! The product that started Krusteaz! So when I was given a choice of which product to use I knew that I had to go for an original! And I sure am glad that I did! It is a the perfect product for a mini appetizer! Add pear,bacon and brie and it makes this appetizer more than just a appetizer but a fancier appetizer for a special gathering! 
 
So I hope you enjoy this recipe for these little “bites” as much as I did! And Happy New Year! I can’t wait to be able to accomplish new goals that I have set for my blog and am grateful for each and every one of you for reading, following, and trying out my recipes!
