Brie cheese is divine served alone, but if you’re looking for extra panache from your hors d’oeuvres, our baked brie with apricot chutney topping will do just the trick! The bonus—it’s elegant and it’s easy.
For this recipe, we used brie cheese for its smooth, creamy flavor. If you prefer, Camembert cheese, which is also a soft cheese made from cow milk, will work just as well. This recipe only takes 10 minutes to prepare and 15 minutes to bake, so you’ll be ready to mingle with your guests in no time.
The more quickly you serve our baked brie with apricot chutney topping, the warmer and gooier it will be for your guests!
