I have made this before and it was very popular! I have also used gouda and edam cheese with good results. (Remember to take off the wax--Just kidding!)

I just made this and it was a total flop. It oozed and spread all over the place. I looked at the wrapper of my brie cheese only to see the words "60% brie cheese" in fine print. Make sure you use the 100% real stuff! And make sure your seams are sealed. Will try again...
