Hey Ami! I made your Baked Apricot Brie for Dugan's poker party. It was a splendid success. I set up all kinds of munchies on the buffet table but this dish was taken off and set right in the middle of the poker table. I doubt it lasted 20 minutes By the time I knew what had happened I think I got about 5 crackers... Who would have thunk that a greasy car mechanic, a bail bondsman, a feed store owner, a horse trainer, a security guard from Wal Mart, and a ne'er do well on probation for stalking his ex-girlfriend would have such refined tastes? We just must get a better class of friends...sigh. And yes, the bail bondsman did get the ne'er do well out of jail. It pays to have friends, I suppose.
I made this for a party I had last night, but substituted a Hot Mango Chutney for the preserves. Oh my goodness!!! I have a feeling I'll be asked to make this one over and over again. And the fact that it takes 2 seconds to prepare is a definite plus. Served it with assorted breads and crackers. What a hit.
