With spring parties, graduations and celebrations this month, I thought I would share the simplest recipe for Brie that you can prepare in under 20 minutes. It’s so easy to prepare and makes a pretty presentation. Feel free to serve with some of your favorite fruits, crackers and breads. You may substitute your favorite nuts for the walnuts and other dried fruit. Just be sure to watch it carefully in the oven so you don’t over-melt it.
