Baked Brie with a Brown Sugar Brandy Sauce



Baked Brie is a pretty amazing holiday party appetizer. If there isn't some of this melted cheese at a party, it's a real shame.  Bring this EASY appetizer recipe to your next get-together. It's only a few minutes hands-on time to make the sauce, drizzle on the brie and then bake.  If you're bringing it to a party you can make the sauce beforehand and just bake once you get to there.  Here are a few more easy holiday appetizers

Ingredients: 

-1 cup brandy
-1/2 cup brown sugar
-1 wheel of brie

optional garnishes: 

-nuts such as pine nuts, pecans, or walnuts
-earthy herbs such as lavender flowers, rosemary or sage



First you need to make your brown sugar brandy sauce.  Combine the 1 cup brandy and 1/2 cup brown sugar in a small sauce pan and whisk together until the brown sugar has mostly dissolved. Next, turn the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil.  Simmer, stirring frequently for a few minutes.  



Next, place your brie on an oven-safe dish and drizzle with the sauce. Sprinkle with chopped nuts and some earthy herbs. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.  I had a smaller brie wheel, so it may take longer if you are baking one of the monster-sized ones.  Once it is sliced, the brie should ooze out.  That's when you know it's done. 




Serve with crackers or crusty bread.
