when nothing else

when nothing else to say
i will give you a recipe...

sugar and nut glazed brie

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped macadamia nuts, pecans, almonds, or walnuts
1 tbsp brandy
1 Brie Cheese (round)
Apple wedges, for serving
Pear wedges, for serving
2 to 3 tablespoons lemon juice
Crackers, for serving

in a small bowl stir together the sugar, nuts, and brandy. Cover and chill for at least 24 hours or up to 1 week.

preheat oven to 500 degrees F.

place the Brie on an ovenproof platter or pie plate. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the Brie is softened and puffy. Spread the sugar mixture in an even layer on top of the warm Brie and bake for 5 minutes longer, or until the sugar melts. Brush the fruit wedges with lemon juice and serve with brie and crackers.

...brie is something that I have grown to love. when I was in Europe some time back, to my mothers horror, I would not touch the stuff. but after a few passing years and a change in my pallet, i now savor each bite.

when i make this recipe everyone seems to love it.
