DIRECTIONS

  • preheat oven to 375.
  • place brie in center of small baking dish and bake for 15 minutes. If using a bigger size, baking times will be longer. You want the brie to be soft to the touch and still maintain its shape, no oozed cheese.
  • remove cheese and place desired amount of jam over wedge. (I used half a jar and it was perfect for the wedge size).
  • place back in oven and bake an additional 5-10 minutes or until you notice the jam is soft and glaze-like.
  • remove and using a spoon, make sure to spread jam over cheese until it is all covered.
  • Top with slivered honey roasted almonds and a couple turns of fresh cracked pepper and serve immediately with an assortment of crackers, toated sliced baguette, and sliced crisp apples or pears. Serve also with a white wine (i.e. pinot grigio to complement the flavors).
