Chef John's Brie with Ripe Pear and Black Pepper

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"This simple and delicious appetizer was inspired by a favorite sandwich I occasionally make--baguette, butter, brie, pear, and pepper. Here we're using thin crackers instead of bread, and the brie, pear, and black pepper make an impressive appetizer."
