Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Combine the pecans, dried cranberries, brown sugar, curry powder and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl.
Put the cheese in a 1-quart baking dish and top with the pecan mixture. Bake until the cheese melts and the nuts are toasted, about 12 minutes. Serve with sliced pears and/or crackers.
