I made this for our Christmas Eve Buffet. The picture is from Alouette Cheese, the brand I used. Hopefully I will remember to grab a picture of mine this Christmas.
This dish is really good, and gets rave reviews whenever I serve it. It looks great served on a plate surrounded by multi-colored grapes and herb seeded crackers.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1
8-ounce baby brie cheese
1 1/2 Tbsp
butter
1/4 c
slivered almonds
1 Tbsp
brown sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Carefully remove the white rind from the top of the Baby Brie cheese, leaving the rind on the sides and bottom. Using a cheese shaver is the easiest way to get it off.
2
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
3
Melt the butter in a saucepan until it foams. Add the nuts and saute until browned. Be careful not to burn.
4
Arrange the nuts on top of the Brie and lightly sprinkle with the brown sugar. Transfer to an oven-proof serving dish and bake for 5-8 minutes, or until it's heated through.
5
Serve with herb-seeded crackers or toasted rye bread rounds. You may cut the Brie into 16 wedges to serve.
