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!
