Yummy Must Try Brie Recipe!!!
Looking for something a little sweet, a little savory and all over delicious? I came across this recipe and thought it looked simple enough and was worth trying out.
I know what you are thinking, “Michelle, where do you find the time to cook after totally dominating the world of kids belts all day?” That’s just it, this recipe is so simple, anyone would have time to bake it.
My guinea pig? One of my best friends. She came over for some coffee and snacks the other night and I threw this together. It’s sooooo simple and yet so fancy all at the same time!
Walnut Crusted Brie
2 Tablespoon Butter or Margarine
½ Cup Walnuts
⅛ Teaspoon Almond Extract
⅛ Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1 (8 oz) Wheel of Brie
¼ Brown Sugar
Crackers for Serving
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Saute the walnuts in the butter until golden brown, approximately 5 minutes. Add the cinnamon and almond extract and stir until the walnuts are coated well. Place the brie in a pie pan and pierce the brie with a knife making about 1 inch slits. Pour the walnut mixture evenly over the brie. Place in the oven and bake until the brie begins to melt and bubble up out of the slits. Serve hot with crackers.
AMAZING! The two of us inhaled it so quickly that I almost forgot that I made it! The combination of the sweet brown sugar, warm, almost bitter, nutty flavor of the walnut and the creamy texture of the cheese all complimented each other so well. I highly recommend trying this recipe. So simple, but you will look like a rock star!
Enjoy every bite!
