Baked Brie with Pesto and Pine Nuts

Author/Submitted by: McCormick
Servings: 0
Categories: Appetizers / Cheese / Haven't Tried

8  ounces  Brie, 1 round
1  tablespoon  McCormick Gourmet Collection Pesto Seasoning
1  tablespoon  olive oil
1  tablespoon  pine nuts
1    garlic clove, minced (optional)
    McCormick Ground Black Pepper
    assorted crackers

1. Preheat oven to 450F. Using a sharp knife, trim the white rind off top of the Brie (top part only, leaving the sides and bottom intact). Place Brie in an 8- or 9-inch pie plate or ovenproof dish.

2. Mix pesto seasoning with olive oil, pine nuts, and garlic, if desired. Spread mixture evenly over the top of the Brie round (where white rind was trimmed off). Sprinkle with black pepper to taste, if desired.

3. Bake 10 minutes or until Brie is warmed through. Serve immediately; surround with assorted crackers.

This easy and elegant appetizer begins with the rich, smooth flavor of Brie cheese, accented with a hint of garlic and the licorice-like basil flavor of McCormick Gourmet Collection Pesto Seasoning.
