We spent the weekend with friends in South Portland. I now have "material" for several postings! So I should be right back! We had our "beach" cocktail party last weekend and I served this Baked Brie but it disappeared before I could get a picture. So I made it again for our friends this weekend.
3/4 cup apricot jam or preserves(not jelly)
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar
8-inch wheel of Brie, about 2 pounds
3/4 cup slivered almonds
Whisk the jam, honey and brown sugar together and set aside.
Cut off the top portion of the rind. Using a spoon, scoop out the center of the brie round to within 3/4 of an inch of the sides and bottom. Try to do this in one piece. Save this cheese. Spread half the jam mixture over the bottom. Replace the scooped-out cheese, and top with the remaining jam mixture. Sprinkle the almonds over the top. Cover loosely with foil and bake in a preheated 350° oven just until melted, about 30 minutes. Remove the foil for the last 5 minutes of baking. Serve with crackers, apple slices or a baguette.
