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.

Ingredients

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

Step-By-Step

1Carefully 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.

2Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

3Melt the butter in a saucepan until it foams. Add the nuts and saute until browned. Be careful not to burn.

4Arrange 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.

5Serve with herb-seeded crackers or toasted rye bread rounds. You may cut the Brie into 16 wedges to serve.
