I made this on Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit. I had never prepared or eaten brie before, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I'm glad I gave it a try. Everyone loved it & wants me to make it again for Christmas.

I made this several years ago at Christmas because I needed to come up with an appetizer, the stores were closed, and i had these ingredients on hand. It was rich, flavorful, easy to make and tasted special. I've made it many times since, and haven't adjusted the recipe in any way (unusual for me). It has always generated compliments, and there are never leftovers. Thank you, Paula!

I made this for my family last year and it was such a hit that they are now asking me to make it again for this holiday season. Looks like we now have a family tradition. Thanks Paula

My family loves this recipe! It's easy to make. But beware, it's habit forming. Once you start eating you can't stop!
