Folks will think you fussed over this pretty appetizer, but it took our Test Kitchen only minutes to top a round of smooth and creamy brie with warm sweet apricots. This is one easy appetizer certain to make any occasion “special.”


  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • Dash salt
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 round Brie cheese (8 ounces)
  • Assorted crackers


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a small saucepan, combine first five ingredients; bring to a boil. Cook and stir over medium heat until slightly thickened. Remove from heat; stir in rosemary.
  2. Trim rind from top of cheese. Place cheese in an ungreased ovenproof serving dish. Spoon apricot mixture over cheese. Bake, uncovered, until cheese is softened, 10-12 minutes. Serve warm, with crackers.
