So yummy! Used this as an appetizer on Thanksgiving. Even though my parents have told me that they don't like brie, they really enjoyed this. Made as is without almonds (I don't like them). I do recommend baking this in a dish that you will serve it with. It's impossible to transfer it when it's done cooking.

soften the cranberries in orange juice instead of hot water, its delicious!

I've been making Brie en Croute for years now and it tastes better every time. My favorite combination is walnut, brown sugar and craisins. The slight tart flavor of the craisins work great with the sweetness of the brown sugar. Thanks for the idea of using apricot jam. Went with another reader's idea and served with sliced apples. Delicious!
