Recipe Notes

  • I like my baked brie super melty. It remains liquid and warm for a while after serving but as you can see it also loses that perfect round shape.  If you wish to keep that perfect round shape, bake the brie for 3-4 mins less and serve it right away so it's still warm.
  • No time for making Fig Olive Tapenade?  Use just jam and nuts if you're rushed. Pestos, smoked salmon, herbs, cranberries, sauteed veggies...Anything really! But make sure to give it a nice drizzle of something sweet like jam or honey to round off the flavors!
