the “app”etizer, that is!
here’s a great one for Christmas.
i make it every year. it gets devoured real quick. it’s that good.
i’m hoping to get my cookbooks attached to this site in the next two months. it’s called APPETIZERS & DESSERTS… WHO NEEDS DINNER? my kind of cooking. this recipe is on page. 20 for those of you that have one. until then, here’s the recipe.
KAHLUA, PECAIN, BROWN SUGAR BAKED BRIE
1 whole wheel of brie (Trader Joe’s or Costco has the creamiest, smoothest, delicious… and best priced)
1 c. Kahlua
1 c. brown sugar, packed
1 c. chopped pecans
preheat oven to 350. slice top off brie and place in a super cute, oven safe dish.. bake for 10-15 minutes. while baking, bring Kahlua and brown sugar to a boil in a pan. reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. add the pecans. remove from heat. take brie out of oven and pour Kahlua mixture over top. sprinkle additional pecans over top just for fun. serve with crackers. it’s great hot or at room temperature. enjoy!
