Delicious melted Brie topped with a lovely combination of vanilla and apricot jam! Topped with toasted almonds for a little crunch, they are one of our Six-Or-Less-Ingredient Holiday Appetizers we featured on WAVE Country with Dawne Gee! Check out the video of our appearance on the show on our New & Events page.
¼ cup thinly sliced almonds
6 tablespoons apricot jam, room temperature
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
4 ounces of brie cheese, rind removed, room temperature
30 mini tart shells
Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Place the almonds on a sheet tray and toast for 6 minutes until light brown; remove and cool. Whisk together the apricot jam and the vanilla, set aside.
Place a rounded ½ teaspoon of brie into each tart shell. Bake the shells for 5 minutes or until the brie has melted into the bottom of the shell. Remove from the oven and spoon ½ teaspoon of apricot mixture over the melted brie. Place back in the oven and bake 2-4 minutes more minutes or until the preserves have melted.
Remove from oven, cool slightly, then garnish each appetizer with toasted almonds. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 30 Appetizers
