Ladies, if you want to make lots of friends and win over a crowd of women, bring this appetizer to your next book club or wine night. A brie dish is the perfect host gift, and worse case scenario they already have one and can recycle yours when they totally copy your winning move.
My friend Cindy brought this over last night, and my mom and I went crazy over it. The brie shines, and the pecans and honey give it the perfect crunch and sweetness. After dinner, we had a few more bites for dessert and went to bed happy. The end.
Honey Pecan Baked Brie
1 round Brie cheese
3/4 cup pecans, chopped
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp good honey
1 Tbsp butter, diced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a dish, combine the pecans, honey, and butter. Cut the top off a round of Brie cheese, and stuff with the mixture. Place the top back on, and place the wheel of brie in a round baking dish.
Bake the cheese for 10 to 15 minutes, until the pecans and sugar begin to carmelize. Let sit for 3 to 5 minutes before serving. Serve with apple wedges and table crackers.
