Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 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.

I went to 2 stores and could not find the McCormick seasoning. I used a pesto sauce and eliminated the olive oil since it was already in the sauce. Next time I will use more pesto for flavoring but overall it was really goo & really easy!

Very easy, very good. I accidentaly left it in the oven too long but it didn't hurt it. Basil and parsley can be used instead of the special blend they suggest using.

This was so easy and was delicious - I used pesto sauce instead of the seasoning - spread over brie and topped with pine nuts then baked - also used 16 oz brie instead of 8 - good thing - the six of us were scraping the bottom of the dish. Thanks!
