Brie with Marinated Fruit
Published November 14, 2012
I love this recipe in the Autumn. The oozy translucence of melted brie combined with the wonderful sweetness of dates is amazing.
1 medium apple, pear cored, peeled and chopped
1/3 cup snipped dates
1/4 cup dried currants or raisins
3 tablespoons rose wine
1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
2-8oz Brie rounds or wedges
2 tbsp apple jelly melted
Assorted crackers or toasted baguette slices
In a small bowl, combine chopped apple and pear, dates and wine or apple. Cover and let stand for 2 hours; do not drain.
stir in toasted pecans. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cut one brie round in half horizontally. Place one half cut side up in an ungreased 9 inch pie plate. Top with 1/4 of the fruit mixture and top wih another half of brie. Place the remaining fruit mixture on top.
Bake unovered in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the brie is melted. Drizzle top with 1 tbsp of melted jelly.
Serve with crackers…makes 10-12 servings.
