With its oozing center and rich, mild taste, baked brie is one holiday appetizer that many people look forward to. I'm definitely among this group: what's not to love about creamy, melted cheese?!
While brie en croute (brie that's baked in puff pastry) is a favorite, I prefer brie baked with nuts and jam. That way you can slather the warm mixture on crackers or crostini.
Although my recipe calls for pecans and strawberry jam, feel free to substitute other nuts, preserves, or even honey. This killer app is unbelievable easy to put together and requires virtually no culinary expertise. To look at my recipe, read more.
