Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 brie cheese wheel
  • Honey
  • Cranberry, cherry or apricot jam or preserves (optional)
  • Chopped pistachios, walnuts or pecans
  • Flaky sea salt (optional)
  • For the platter: crackers, crostini, baguette slices, etc

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place the brie in a baking dish or on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes until soft and warm: it’s done when you touch the center with your finger and it feels very liquid inside. 
  2. Top with honey or jam, crushed pistachios, and a bit of flaky sea salt. Surround with crackers or crostini, grapes, apple, pear, etc.
