Tangy Pepper-Pecan Brie

Tangy Pepper-Pecan Brie
Appetizers don't get any easier than this. Start with a round of Brie, add your choice of three delicious toppings, surround with slices of French bread, and bake!
1/2   cup pecan halves
1   jalapeño pepper, stemmed and seeded
1/4   cup apricot preserves
1   4-inch round (8 ounces) Brie cheese with rind, room temperature
1   loaf (16 ounces) French baguette
   Vegetable oil
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coarsely chop pecans using Chef's Knife. Chop jalapeño using Food Chopper. In Small Batter Bowl, combine jalapeño and preserves; mix well using Skinny Scraper.
  2. Cut Brie in half horizontally using Utility Knife. Place one half of Brie, cut side up, onto center of Large Round Stone with Handles. Spread half of the apricot mixture evenly over bottom half of Brie using Small Spreader. Top with half of the pecans and remaining half of Brie, cut side up. Spread remaining apricot mixture over Brie; sprinkle with remaining pecans.
  3. Using Bread Knife, cut baguette on a bias into twenty-four 1/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange baguette slices around Brie; spray with oil using Kitchen Spritzer. Bake 8-10 minutes or until baguette slices are golden brown and Brie begins to soften. Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve using Bamboo Spreader.

Cook's Tips: Wear plastic gloves when working with jalapeño peppers. The juice from the peppers can create a burning sensation on the skin.

For a simple garnish, slice a jalapeño pepper in half lengthwise using Petite Paring Knife. Brush cut surface with apricot jam. Place next to Brie before baking.

This recipe can also be prepared on the Large Bar Pan, if desired.

Camembert cheese can be substituted for the Brie, if desired.
