Baked Brie with Dried Fruits and Nuts

Baked Brie with Dried Fruits and Nuts

All amounts are all approximate. Use as much or as little as you like of nuts and dried fruits.

 If you have too much, it keeps well in the refrigerator.

1 wheel of brie cheese

1/4 cup chopped pecans

1/4 cup chopped pistachios

1/4 cup chopped dried figs

1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries

1/4 cup fig preserves, plus more for smearing on top of cheese.

Carefully slice the top rind of the brie cheese, trying not to take much of the cheese. A little bit of rind on top is ok. Spread some fig preserves over the cheese. Chop the nuts and fruits, mix in the preserves and pile on top. Refrigerate until ready to use, then bake in a 350 degree oven for five minutes, or place in the microwave for one minute. You don't want to melt the cheese, just soften it. Serve with crackers.
