I have been making this recipe ever since I can remember…and every time I have a party. It's so simple to fix, doesn't take a lot of ingredients or time, and is always a favorite with my guests.

"I’m a stay-at-home mother with two boys and I enjoy cooking—especially appetizers," shares Tracy Schuhmacher from Penfield, New York. "It must run in the family because my mom served appetizers and desserts exclusively for several Christmas Eve celebrations. Brie is one of my favorite cheeses and this sweet-savory recipe is party-special but especially easy to throw together."
