Ingredients

  • 1 wedge of Brie cheese about 16 ounces
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds optional
  • 1/2 pint warm fig preserves 1 cup
  • 1 box 4 & 1/2 ounces Carr’s Table Water Crackers or similar plain crackers

Instructions

  • Unwrap Brie and let stand at room temperature for several hours before serving; place in a warm spot so that cheese will be soft.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spread slivered almonds on a small rimmed baking sheet and toast for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring often. Remove from oven, cool and reserve.
  • To serve, place Brie on a serving plate and pour preserves over the cheese. Preserves will run over the sides and onto the serving dish. Sprinkle toasted almonds on top and serve with plain water crackers like Carr’s.
