I love this recipe. I always serve it with apples and bread so I can switch back and forth. It is good with crisp pears as well.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This baked Brie is a must-do the next time you have guests. We loved the warm and creamy Brie with the nutty caramelized topping and could not stop eating it. Each bite is buttery, sweet, salty, and crunchy when spooned onto a piece of bread or cracker. It can be served alone as an appetizer or added to a charcuterie board.
