Although the baked Brie is a fairly standard presentation – the addition of the curry with the chutney and almonds makes this satisfying dish a bit warmer and special. Enjoy with fresh slices of bread while it is warm!
BAKED CURRIED BRIE
(from Simply Classic – The Junior League of Seattle)
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 8-ounce wheel of Brie or Camembert
¼ cup fruit chutney
¼ cup cashews, coarsely chopped
Baguette slices or crackers
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
Sprinkle the curry powder over the cheese. Using your fingers, rub the curry powder into the top and sides. Spread the chutney evenly over the top and sprinkle with cashews. Gently press the cashews into the chutney so they adhere. Bake 7 to 10 minutes. If cheese is cold when placed in oven, add 5 minutes to the cooking time. Transfer to a serving platter and surround with baguette slices or crackers.
