Baked Brie (Brown Sugar, Nuts & Brandy)
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup chopped macadamia nuts or pecans (optional)
- 1 tablespoon brandy
- 1 (14-ounce) round brie
- Apple wedges, for serving
- Pear wedges, for serving
- 2 to 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- Crackers, for serving
In a small bowl stir together the sugar, nuts, and brandy.
Cover and chill for at least 24 hours or up to 1 week. (the longer it
sits the better!)
Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
Place the brie on an ovenproof platter or pie plate. Bake for 4 or 5
minutes or until the brie is slightly softened. Spread the sugar
mixture in an even layer on top of the warm brie and bake for 2 to 3
minutes longer, or until the sugar melts. Brush the fruit wedges with
lemon juice and arrange them around 1 side of the brie. Place crackers
around the other side.
