    I have two open houses this week with other DS companies and for my host this evening, I made the Tangy Pepper Pecan Brie which was a huge hit. The first host bought the ingredients and even bought extra for the host for tomorrow night. (they are friends). But as soon as Thursday nights host saw that the brie used a jalapeno pepper, she said no way. I even tried to convince her to try it tonight to see that it was not too strong tasting but she refuses. So she does have the brie but wants a different brie recipe. I will only have time to quickly stop at the grocery store on my way to her open house so can someone please suggest a really simple, great recipe that uses brie??? TIA

    There's one called Honey-Apple Brie Bites on CC, in the Holiday Recipes at the bottom of the main page. Haven't tried it, but plan to make it tomorrow/today.

    There are 2 variations to the Tangy Pepper Brie in the SB. I have tried the Brown Sugar one and it was very good, too.

    Not sure if it was in the Canada SB:

    Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Brie: Substitute 2/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained, patted dry and chopped for the apricot preserves. Substitute 1 tablespoon prepared basil pesto for the jalapeño pepper and 1/4 cup pine nuts for the pecans. Proceed as recipe directs.

    Brown Sugar Dijon Brie: Substitute 1/2 cup brown sugar for the apricot preserves, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard for the jalapeño pepper and 1/2 cup sliced almonds for the pecans. Reserve 1/4 cup of the almonds. Chop remaining almonds; combine brown sugar, chopped almonds and mustard. Assemble as directed in Step 2; top with reserved almonds. Proceed as recipe directs.

    I love to just slice the brie open, pour in some Spicy Pineapple Rum Sauce, put it back together, and back until the brie is melty. :)

    I've done that one for a demo last week but in canada we cant seem to find the prepared phyllo shells and its super tricky to work with the pastry. It was good though but too time consuming for me. LOL

    Thanks for all the suggestions ladies. It looks as though the apple and cranberry one is popular:)

    So it will be that one or the brown sugar dijon one.

    Thanks!

    I was just thinking about this combo yesterday and wondering if it was any good. How could it not be though, right?
