Baked persimmons with honey, walnuts and rosemary and gooey melted brie on top! An easy and elegant appetizer for the holiday parties.
Nothing is more luxurious than hot melted cheese!! What if that cheese is melted over sweet fruit and honey? YUMMO
Sweet, salty, hot, fruity and a bit of crunch!! This dish is incredible easy and is sure to impress your guests. You really don't need a written recipe - place some very ripe persimmons in a pan, sprinkle chopped rosemary and walnuts and then drizzle honey on top. Bake for the fruit to soften and then top with brie and let melt. Inspiration for this recipe is from Baked brie with honeyed apricots from America's Test Kitchen.
-very ripe persimmons are perfect! Fuyu or Hachiya will work
-baking time for the persimmons depends on the ripeness of your fruit. Riper fruit wouldn't take as much to time to soften when compared to firmer ones.
