Brie and Fig Appetizer

Brie and Fig Appetizer
1 pound brie
1 jar Fig Spread (World Market)
1 box crackers

While brie is still cold remove top rind. Place top back on, re-wrap brie and leave out until cheese is room temperature. When ready to serve remove top and place on decorative platter with fig spread and crackers. So smooth and creamy, watch it disappear!

BTW- Just updated Blogs of the Month for August. Pop over and and see who I picked!

Turn up your sound, put your dancing shoes on, and enjoy this Cooking Salon!

    You still have to clean the kitchen, right? Or is that just a fake backdrop like they use at the movie sets? Looks great!!

    You are killing me! So fun. I am cracking up. Funny you mention the “salon” as years ago I wanted to start a salon like Gertrude Stein had or something… talking art, philosophy, literature….
