Easy Baby Bries - Apricot and Cherry
I don't have good photos of these recipes because they get eaten up before I can get my lens cap off!
These two brie recipes are easy as can be, fool-proof crowd pleasing appetizers.
Brandied Apricot Brie and Cherry Pecan Brie (pictured above)
Brandied Apricot Brie
Mix together 1 C apricot preserves, 2 teaspoons of brandy, 1 1/2 teaspoons of orange juice, 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon.
Heat mixture in microwave for 30 seconds to a minute - until it's just starting to bubble.
Place a wheel of brie in a shallow serving dish, pour the apricot mixture over it, and microwave until the brie is soft and melting. (In my microwave it's about a minute.)
Serve with French bread.
And even though I've made this three times this summer, these are the two pathetic photographs I have:
Next up, Cherry Pecan Brie.
I think this one is my new favorite. It's sweet and zingy and uses two of my favorite things: cherries and balsamic vinegar!
Mix in a bowl 1/3 C cherry preserves, 1 T balsamic vinegar, 1/8 t freshly ground pepper, and 1/8 t of salt. Pour mixture over your Brie round and heat in microwave until the brie is soft and melty. Top with toasted pecans.
Again, this is it for the pictures:
Two super easy, no cook, wonderful appetizers!
