  • 8 ounces Brie
  • Scant 1/2 cup dried craisins
  • Scant 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
A platter of toasted dipping breads surrounding a large lump of brie cheese, coated in craisins and chopped pecans, ready for hungry goers to grab at the local church potluck.


Trim rind from top of Brie, leaving about ¼ inch border. Place on a pretty microwave-safe pie plate.  

Combine craisins, pecans, and brown sugar in a bowl. (I usually chop these together a little bit using a hand chopper, but it isn’t necessary.) Sprinkle about ¼ cup of the mixture onto top of the Brie. Microwave at high for 1 ½ to 2 minutes, until cheese is softened and beginning to melt. Serve with your favorite crackers. Four to 6 servings.
