This is another one of those recipes with no quantities because the amounts depend upon the size of the piece of brie. If you have ever been a little bit afraid of trying to bake brie yourself, you will find this recipe extremely simple. Enjoy it.
- Lightly sprinkle bottom layer with brown sugar and dust with cinnamon.
- Scatter with thin slivers of dried apricots and chopped pecans.
- Replace top layer.
- Heat in 350 degree oven for 5-7 minutes or in a microwave oven on low until soft to touch.
- Garnish serving plate with whole pecans and dried apricot halves.
- Serve with crackers.
I have done exactly the same thing, with exactly the same ingredients, many times -- and it's always a success with guests. I highly recommend adding a few craisins during the holiday seasons; makes it a little more festive. This is VERY easy to prepare; the hardest part is snipping the apricots with your kitchen scissors. I suggest you buy as big a brie round as your budget will allow; the bigger the brie, the more spectacular it looks when you serve it!
I tried this with a baked Camembert instead of Brie, and it was heaven on a plate. My guests all loved it, and even those who aren't big cheese lovers loved it. I served it with crackers, but once people were full they still kept eating it without the crackers! Simply stunning, thanks for sharing!
