Ingredients

  • 1 fresh baguette
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 200 grams double cream brie cheese (or vegan cream cheese)
  • 3 pears (sliced, we used Bartlett)
  • 3 sprigs thyme
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup walnuts (roughly chopped)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 F.

  2. While your oven is preheating, slice your baguette on a bias into 1/2 inch slices. Lightly brush each piece with olive oil on both sides, place on a large baking sheet and bake for 2 - 3 minutes each side, until golden brown.

  3. On each toasted baguette slice, layer a thin slice of brie cheese (or a spread of vegan cream cheese), sliced pear, crumbled walnuts, and thyme. Drizzle with honey and serve!
