A sweet and savory easy appetizer. Delicious with slices of apples or with crackers! If you wish, cut the rind off top of the Brie.

This was a crown pleaser. I altered the recipe a bit. I cooked pecans brown sugar and added butter on the stove stirring constantly until smooth. I removed and added Kaluah and a tsp of vanilla. I removed the top layer of the Brie Placed pecan mix on tap and wrapped it in pie crust. Brushed the crust with egg whit placed whole pecans on top and baked 25 minutes...yummy like a praline melted on top of Brie!! Read More

Too sweet for my taste and I cut the brown sugar down to 2 TBLS. I ll make it again with less sugar and give it another try. Presentation was great. Read More

This is a fabulous recipe! I have had it on a recipe card for years and am delighted to find the same exact recipe here. This is a knock-out hit at parties. I always hope to bring some home but that never happens! I've gone to doubling it so there will be some left--and usually they eat all the double recipe! Read More

I could only find 8 oz brie rounds so I adjusted the recipe accordingly and followed it as written. It was delicious served with crackers. Read More

It s so simple to make and yummy. It is my go to dish to bring for any occasion. I do add a little extra granulated sugar for a sweeter taste. I also cut off the top of the Brie and then put the nut mixture right on the cheese. Read More

Very easy and very yummy. I did not have a wheel of Bri so I used a wedge. It was a little messy since the Bri spread on the plate but it was still delicious! Read More
