Serves/Yields 6 to 8 appetizer servings
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped pecans or almonds
1 1/2 teaspoons brandy, (or other liqueur – I used Kahlua)
1 firm-ripe whole brie cheese (8 ounce)
Apple and pear slices
Stir together the brown sugar, chopped pecans and brandy.
Place cheese in a baking dish just slightly larger than the width of the cheese. Bake in a 425 degree F oven just until cheese begins to soften in the center, about 6 minutes.
Evenly sprinkle sugar mixture over cheese. Bake until sugar melts and cheese is melted in center (cut to test), 3 to 5 minutes longer. Scoop hot cheese onto crackers and apple/pear slices to eat.
