“a simple yet elegant and flavorful appetizer to get your dinner party started. Definitely a taste of class!”
2 oz

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces brie cheese, wedge (depends on how many people, can use whole round)
  • 6 ounces apricot jam
  • 6 ounces honey-roasted almonds, presliced (in salad aisle, guessed on size, just buy bag and use half of it)
  • pepper, freshly cracked (garnish)


  1. preheat oven to 375.
  2. place brie in center of small baking dish and bake for 15 minutes. If using a bigger size, baking times will be longer. You want the brie to be soft to the touch and still maintain its shape, no oozed cheese.
  3. remove cheese and place desired amount of jam over wedge. (I used half a jar and it was perfect for the wedge size).
  4. place back in oven and bake an additional 5-10 minutes or until you notice the jam is soft and glaze-like.
  5. remove and using a spoon, make sure to spread jam over cheese until it is all covered.
  6. Top with slivered honey roasted almonds and a couple turns of fresh cracked pepper and serve immediately with an assortment of crackers, toated sliced baguette, and sliced crisp apples or pears. Serve also with a white wine (i.e. pinot grigio to complement the flavors).
