Baked Brie

It's been a long time since I have posted anything to my blog.  I have been very busy and my blog has gone to the last rung of my priority list.

Last Christmas, at our tennis party, the hostess, my friend MAS, made this Baked Brie appetizer.  It was delicious!!  She sent around the recipe a few weeks ago and I decided I wanted to prepare it for a Thanksgiving Day appetizer.  I normally don't eat a lot so this appetizer will be a welcomed sight as I sip a Whiskey Sour - a Thanksgiving tradition thanks to my sister D and brother-in-law, L!

This recipe works well with a 10" Wheel of Brie.  Preheat over to 350.  Place the wheel of brie on a rimmed plate that you will serve from so you are not left trying to tranfer the soft brie.  Bake Brie for 20 minutes - til soft.

Meanwhile, prepare the topping.  Melt 1 Stick of Butter with 1 Cup of Brown Sugar over medium heat, until the sugar disolves.  Add to the mixture 1 Diced Granny Smith Apple, 1/2 Cup Crainsins, and 1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans and stir until everything is coated.  Remove from heat.  Add 2 Tbl Grand Marnier.  It will bubble as the alcohol evaporates.  Once it is done bubbling, pour over the hot brie.  Serve immediately with Sturdy Crunchy Crackers or Crunchy Bread Rounds.  Happy Thanksgiving to all!
