Beth’s Baked Brie

Picture
Every Christmas and Thanksgiving, my Aunt Beth would make this Baked Brie and everyone would hover around it until it was all gone.  Then it kind of disappeared for awhile until this Christmas… when it made an amazing comeback.  So when the time came for me to bring something to our girls poker night, I knew exactly what I wanted to bring.  My Aunt Beth always makes this with a round block of brie in a pie dish, unfortunately, Harris Teeter only had triangle pieces so I had to be creative.  I used 3 triangle blocks and it turned out to be just as delicious as a round block!  So without further ado…

The Elements: 
Three triangles of brie
Approximately 1/4 cup of light brown sugar
Handful of slivered almonds

Procedure:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
Place brie in pie dish
Sprinkle brown sugar over brie, basically covering completely
Distribute slivered almonds on top for decoration (they look pretty when baked and add a little extra flavor)
Cook for approximately 20-25 minutes until the cheese bubbles and the center looks soft
The Verdict:  Absolutely delicious!  Everyone loved it at girls’ poker night and so I made it again for Super Bowl Sunday.  This is great with whole wheat Wheat Thins or with slices of Granny Smith Apples.  This is a perfect go-to dish for entertaining or if you need to bring something along with you when going to a party.This is my first post, which I am mainly using to test out the blogging features, the categories feature on the right hand side and making sure the site works properly.  However, please feel free to play jury and comment on this entry, or try it yourself and see how you like it!
