Your guests will adore this simple fig-topped brie. It tastes delicious and is sure to be a favorite. Delight in the simple tastes of figs, nuts, and brie cheese.
4 Tbsp. fig jam or other fruit preserves
⅓ cup diced dried figs, raisins or dates
⅔ cup chopped pecans or other nuts
Whole round brie cheese (around 13 oz.)
Sliced French bread or water crackers
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Warm the fig jam in the microwave for 30 seconds to soften. In a small bowl, combine the figs with the nuts. Add half of the warmed fig jam and mix well to coat the nut mixture.
Place the round of brie in an oven-safe dish and coat brie with the remainder of the warmed jam, then spread the fig and nut mixture just on the top of the brie. Bake brie in the oven for 10 minutes or until it starts to ooze but not so long it melts. Place bread or crackers in a basket or tray and serve with warm brie.
