      Love this recipe. The only thing I do slightly different is I use camembert (in place of brie-stays soft better) and I make gentle slits on the top before heating and put a bit of pesto on it so the flavors get through the whole round of cheese. Then I add a bit more at serving. Also try taking small pieces of cheese & the pesto sauce & stuff a mushroom & bake. Ooolahlah...

      This was an outstanding appie, easier than many I've made, and it was received with oohs and aahs at the function I took it to; it does look elegant, and tastes divine. Thanks so much for posting this recipe, it was exactly what I was looking for!

      Fabulous! Made this for a July Fourth party, and it was one of the first appetizers to go. The combination of flavors was absolutely delicious. And boy, was it easy! The brie round that I had was pretty heavily coated in rind on top and bottom, so I used a filet knife to scrape a good bit of it off. This is really incredibly wonderful, and makes a great appetizer year-round (maybe roll the edges in paprika to make it look more Christmas-y?). Great recipe I'll make often, to rave reviews! Thanks, Cheryl!
