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!
Caramelized Pear, Bacon and Brie Bites
1 cup Krusteaz Pie Crust Mix
2-3 tablespoons water
4 ounces brie, diced into 1/2 inch cubes
1 tablespoon butter
1 large ripe pear, diced small
Pinch of salt
Pinch of cinnamon
Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
4 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
3 slices of cooked bacon, diced
Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray mini muffin pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix pie crust and water together with a fork adding water one tablespoon at a time.
Form dough into a ball. Roll dough into a 10-inch round on a well-floured surface. Use a 2-inch circle cookie cutter and cut into 24 circles. Press small circles of dough into each mini muffin cup. Place a small chunk of brie in each muffin cup.
Bake 8-10 minutes.
While crust in baking, in a small frying pan melt butter then add diced pear, and salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cook for 3 minutes, until pear is soft.
Stir in brown sugar, apple cider vinegar and bacon. Cook until liquid is dissolved about 3-5 minutes. Once the crust is done, remove from oven and top with pear mixture. Serve immediately.
