Recipe: Melted Brie with Apricots

With the holidays fast approaching, your home will be filled with guests. I highly recommend this recipe when you want to impress them with a simple yet tasty appetizer.


1/2 cup apricot jam
1 tbsp. grated orange peel
1 tbsp. brandy or orange juice
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/8 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1 1/2 lb. wedge Brie cheese
1 French Bread Baguette, thinly sliced

1.Mix jam, orange peel, brandy (or orange juice), lemon juice and cinnamon in a shallow microwave-safe serving dish just large enough to hold the Brie.

2.Cover apricot sauce and heat in a microwave oven at full power until sauce begins to bubble, about 1 to 1½ minutes.

3.Set Brie in apricot sauce. Return to microwave oven and cook, uncovered, until the cheese is hot and slightly melted, about 1 minute; check at 20-second intervals. Be sure to watch and not overcook the Brie.

4.Place baguette slices on a platter and serve.
