I posted my Christmas menu on Monday and I knew immediately baked brie was going to be part of it. I decided on an apple and honey combination – who doesn’t love apple and honey? Bring on another crowd pleaser!
I realize the photos for this post are not the most amazing. In the process of creating and testing this recipe, I was hungry. Hunger and food photography do not mix. I repeat, hunger and food photography really do not mix. I took the time to make the apples on the stove and then wait for the brie to bake in the oven….BUT I got impatient and tried to move the brie to quickly. It exploded.
However, I decided to post picture and recipe anyways because my guess is that this is actually what the end product will look like for many of you too. It’s not always about perfection, it’s about delicious. And if you expect it, when it happens you won’t be disappointed.
After I finally took a few photos, my husband and I ate almost this entire melty goodness. And yes, I am slightly embarrassed to say we also ate dinner afterwards. The apple and honey combination is perfect and if it’s gone between two people, it will be gone with a crowd in no time. Serve with crackers, sliced apples and fresh baguette. Enjoy!
