Please forgive the picture. I totally forgot to take one until we had already dug into the brie! But it was so good and irresistible! This is another appetizer that I made for Kristi’s Pampered Chef party and it was dreamy and so easy to make.
1/2 cup sliced almonds, divided
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 4″ round (8 oz) Brie cheese with rind, room temperature
1 (16 oz) loaf French baguetter
1 Preheat oven to 425. Coarsely chop 1/4 cup of almonds. Combine chopped almonds, sugar and Dijon and mix well.
2 Cut brie in half horizontally. Place one half of Brie, cut side up, on center of pizza stone. Spread with half the sugar mixture then top with remaining Brie also cut side up and spread with remaining sugar mixture. Top with remaining almonds.
3 Cut baguette into 24 1/4″ slices. Arrange slices around Brie on stone and spray with oil. Bake 8 – 10 minutes or until baguette slices are golden brown and Brie begins to soften. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
