Some days, I eat cauliflower – but today, I eat brie. Life's about balance.

I've been loving sweet and spicy foods together lately, so one of my recent impulse buys at Trader Joe's was sweet hot pepper jelly. You might be thinking “jelly and pear, really?” but I promise, it works.

Start by cutting your brie wedge in half widthwise. You can use a brie cheese wheel too, but you might need extra dough to cover it completely. Spread a layer of the jelly, sprinkle some pear, and sandwich the cheese together.

Wrap it up good and tight so the cheese doesn't leak out in the oven.

Serve with extra pear slices, and probably forks. And/or napkins. This is a messy one. I topped it off with more jelly when it came out of the oven so it obviously made it sticky, and my cheese knife was necessary.

I love this combination. Cheese and Hot Pepper Jelly are a wonderful combination. You've made it even better by making it a baked brie with hot pepper jelly!
