  1. : First things first: preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Next, spread the walnuts onto the bottom of an ungreased pie plate and bake them for 10 to 12 minutes or until toasted. You'll need to stir the walnuts occasionally. Remove the toasted walnuts from the oven and stir in your coffee-flavored liqueur or syrup, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Set aside. Then, reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees F. Remove the top of the rind of Brie cheese and throw it away. Place the Brie cheese into an ungreased shallow baking dish and top with the walnut mixture. Last, bake the Brie uncovered for 8 to 10 minutes or until the Brie cheese is soft and throughly heated. Remove from the oven and serve immediately with your crackers, pear and apple slices. This is a great recipe for summertime parties to be able to take advantage of fruit in season. But it's also great in the winter. The warm creamy texture of the Brie is sure to warm the heart and toes! Enjoy. Variation: Try pecans instead of walnuts. And you can use Kahlua instead of other coffee liqueur or syrup. For more great ideas for cheese appetizers or dips visit the Cheese Dips page and our Cheese Appetizers page.
