I love to find simple recipes that make a big impact (and give the impression that I did something fabulous!)....this was easy, impressive and delicious!! Based on another reviewer's recommendation, I soaked my walnuts in the bourbon for a couple of hours just to add some extra flavor. I then used the bourbon from the 'soaking' in the recipe....probably double the amount called for....but it worked out just fine. The bourbon was not overpowering and the flavored walnuts complemented the mild brie perfectly. The topping browned and carmelized so nicely creating a very elegant looking appetizer...only negative is that the poor little 8 oz brie did not last long! To take to a party I'll just use a larger round of brie and double the topping. I served with whole wheat crackers and slices of green apple. An absolute keeper! Thank you for sharing.
