Ingredients:  
1 large wheel of brie
3 ripe pears (I used Ontario Bartlett)
Handful of chopped walnuts
1/4 raw sugar

Directions:
Directions:
.Cut the rind off the top of the wheel of brie. Place cut side up in brie baker.
Wash, and slice pears into 1/2 inch thick slices.
In a large frying pan, over medium heat, cook sliced pears until they start to release moisture, about 1-2 minutes. Add raw sugar. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, for another 4-5 minutes.
Once sugar starts to thicken and coat the pears add the walnuts. Continue to cook until most moisture is evaporated and pears and walnuts are lightly coated.
Pour mixture over brie, or if you want to get fancy, layer each individual piece of pear around the top of the brie and scoop walnuts on top.
Once you arrive at your final destination, or if you are preparing this at home, pop brie baker in a 350C oven just until the brie starts to bubble and melt.
Serve with crackers or baked baguette slices.
