i first had this dip at my friend Rachel‘s house. with the first bit i took of this, i instantly knew what heaven must be like. it’s one of those foods you crave just thinking about it. even people (including men!) who have either never had brie before or don’t typically like brie like this dip. it looks and tastes classy, but is oh-so-simple to make.
(a Pampered Chef recipe)
1 brie round (with rind)
½ c. apricot jam
¼ c. pecans, chopped
1-2 jalepeños, seeds and veins removed, and finely diced
Preheat oven to 400°F.
1) cut brie in half side to side. place one half on a pizza stone or baking dish, cut side up.
2) in a small bowl, combine apricot jam and peppers. spoon half of jam mixture on top of cut side of brie. top with half of the chopped nuts.
3) top with other half of brie round, cut side up. top with remaining jam then remaining pecans.
4) bake at 400°F for 8-10 minutes.
serve with toasted baguette slices, crackers, and/or pita chips. if you are cooking this on a pizza stone, put the brie in the middle and arrange the baguette slices around the outside of it, then spray with a little bit of olive and bake according to directions.
