Baked Brie with L’Epicurien Black Fig Jam

Baked Brie

PF5033

Ingredients

  • 8-ounce round brie cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup hazelnuts, unroasted and roughly chopped
  • L’Epicurien Black Fig Jam
  • Fresh Rosemary

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Peel or slice off the top rind of the brie and scrape out a small amount of cheese to form a shallow hollow in the center. Place the cheese in a small baking dish like a pie pan. (If you plan on transferring the cheese to a serving dish after it’s baked, line the pie pan with a square of parchment paper.)

     

  2. Top the brie with the jam and sprinkle the hazelnuts over it.

     

  3. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until the fruit is bubbling and the cheese is gooey. This is a delicate process, and baking time can vary. The goal is to take the cheese out after it has softened, but just before it collapses into a heap.

     

  4. If desired, lift the parchment paper and use a spatula to carefully slide the cheese onto a prettier serving dish. Garnish with a rosemary sprig and serve immediately with assorted crackers.
