Baked Brie with Pecans


For my Friday night Bunco group, the dish I decided to take was from a recipe I use often when I need a quick, yet delicious appetizer. I was given this recipe by my sister in law many years ago and it has become somewhat of a signature recipe for me. Most people really love it and by serving it with apple slices, there is even a healthy twist.

The pecan, Kahlua and brown sugar (I use Splenda brown sugar) mixture melts over the brie, as it bakes. The brie becomes slightly soft and creamy and the perfect consistency for dipping the apple slices. Another serving option, is to include pear slices with the apple. This makes a pretty presentation and really couldn't be easier. You can read more about my neighborhood Bunco group here and here.
