Although apricot and almond are my go-to flavors for baked Brie, the beauty of this recipes is that it can be adapted in so many different ways.
You can use almost any kind of jam (blackberry is another favorite of mine) and any kind of nuts. Besides almonds, I’ve used pecans and pistachios, and walnuts work well too.
Smoked or honey roasted nuts are also wonderful and add a whole new level of flavor. Just make sure to take a few minutes to toast your nuts–it’s really adds so much to the dish.
Warm from the oven, the cheese is melted and gooey and perfect served with crackers, apple slices or bread.
Although I make this Apricot Almond Baked Brie all year long, it’s an especially great recipe to have on hand during the busy holiday season. Enjoy!
