Best brie appetizer EVER

Baked brie 
My friend Thomas and I love cooking, and I enjoy stealing his recipes. Here is one that his mom makes, and we tried the other evening. It’s absolutely delicious. Make it tonight!
1 wheel of Brie cheese (about 5 inches in diameter)
cup chopped walnuts or pecans
cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons good bourbon
Heat your oven to 500 degrees F.

Put the wheel of Brie in a shallow ovenproof dish (we used a ceramic dish designed for

Heat Brie alone for about 5 minutes.

While Brie is in the oven, mix the bourbon, nuts and brown sugar.
After 5 minutes, take out the dish and spread the mixture on top of the Brie.
Put the dish back in the oven for about 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare a plate of water crackers and sliced apples for dipping.

Take the Brie out of the oven, and let your guests spread it over crackers and apple slices.
Thanks to Thomas for his recipe!
