Spent a wonderful Thanksgiving (Canadian) at my friend Richards with a number of friends eating great food and having great conversation. After a wonderful turkey dinner, out came dessert which his friend Rita made that was not only beautiful to look at but out of this world delicious!.
Baked brie with toasted almond slivers and sliced fruit.
So aside from a lot of slicing this was fairly easy to make according to Rita. Here is how she made it.
1 round of brie cheese with the top skin sliced off
Toast a handful or two of slivered almonds in butter
Bake the brie in a 350 oven till it becomes creamy (she pre-baked it and then we heated it up)
Thinly sliced apples and pears
You dip the slice of fruit into the brie and viola….you are in heaven. The fact that Rita used double cream brie just made it even better. Definitely not a dish for lactose intolerant individuals!
I have also seen this dish with dried cranberries on top or apricot jam or anything you like as a topping.
Try it for your next gathering as an appetizer, dessert, with wine – anything will do.
