Very elegant recipe, appropriate for fancy dinner parties. I had difficulty removing the brie coating, but the mix of flavors was superb and worth the effort. I used fresh mushrooms without a problem, and also substituted apple jack flavored brandy. Be careful not to burn the almonds when toasting - they brown quickly if left on a high heat.

Although the flavor was good it was VERY greasy. If I make this recipe again I would completely omit the butter.

Wonderful but next time I will use less or no butter since the oil from the cheese plus the butter makes it very oily. Flavor is wonderful! I will make it again!

This was fabulous! I made this along with several other appetizers on Christmas Eve and this went first. I had several requests for this recipe and will definitely be making this again. Thank you for the great recipe!

Fantastic center piece to my buffet table! I did cut the amount of butter in half because I knew from experience how much fat Brie can release when baked. You don't have to buy the most expensvive Brie out there, I had very good sucess with Presidental Brie which costs between $10-$15 a wheel.

Fabulous! Don't bother removing the white coating, it's completely edible, although a bit stronger, it's delicious! I served this with some homemade toast points for our anniversary and it was such a special appetizer! Now I buy brie cheese in bulk so I can make it often!

This was delicious! I used Canola Harvest, fresh mushrooms and a clove of garlic and it was a HUGE hit. Served with Triscuits to keep to our South Beach Diet. Did need to bake about 15 minutes longer to completely melt the Brie, but worth the wait! Everyone wanted the recipe!!

so good, I served this at my super bowl party and it was the first thing to disappear, and I made a double batch! Next time I am going to add more almonds, because I could barley tell they were in there.
