Baked Brie with Cherry Preserves and Almonds
Baked brie is a simple and elegant appetizer that is quick to prepare. Baked just until soft, the cherry preserves offer a sweet contrast to the cheese flavor and the almonds give great texture.
Servings 4 Serves 4 as a solo appetizer; more if combined with other appetizers
- 1 8- ounce wheel of Brie cheese
- 1/4 cup Cherry Preserves
- 2 tablespoons Sliced Almonds or Slivered Almonds (or a mix)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet with sides (note: dark colored baking sheets may require less baking time).
Carefully slice the top of brie off removing only the rind. Spoon the preserves over the top. Distribute the almonds evenly over the top. Bake 8-10 minutes until the cheese is warmed and soft but not melted. Remove and serve.
