Outstanding! 1 tbsp of rye isn't quite enough, I used 1/4 cup of sliced almonds, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, and about 1/4 cup of Gibson's Finest rye whiskey. Good with pretty much any crackers you can think of.

needed some additional flavour...seemed a little bland.

Even those relatives don't like brie LOVED this recipe. We used triple sec as we didn't want to buy more expensive Grand Marnier for such a small amount. It gave the same orange flavor and blended really well with the brown sugar and pecans. May not wait for the next party or holiday to make this again!

This is one of our favourites - try it also with Grand Marnier and serve with triscuits and slices of tart green apples - delish!

I love this dish. I have served it as an appetizer and as a dessert especially on those evenings when you have to whip up something fast. I have experimented with many variations and one of my favorites is 1/4 brown sugar, 1/4 sliced almonds and 1/4 Amaretto. I serve it with a stack of unsalted crackers and some apples (if I have time to "lemonize" them) if in a rush, a pile of fresh, cold, seedless green grapes. If I am serving this as a dessert I will usually buy some brownies from "Divine Brownies" each one with a different flavor and frosting, cut them diagonally, it makes a beautiful presentation, just so I have something else to offer if someone doesn't like or can't have cheese.

I really liked this recipe. My only complaint is that you need a way to keep the brie warm. It is not good once it cools off.
