I went to a party a couple of years ago and our hostess served this recipe on french bread slices. It was absolutely wonderful. It's been a while since I made it so I don't have a picture, but I promise you will love it....I owe this recipe to my friend Jennifer.
Pare pears and cut into chunks. Place in a medium skillet. Add the butter and bring to a boil..Add the rum and cover on simmer until pears are tender. Remove lid and increase heat, watching carefully to make sure it doesn't scorch. If you have a lot of liquid, you may wont to cook it down some.
Remove from heat. Slice the Brie on top and put under broiler until cheese melts. Serve on french bread slices or crackers
