- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 3 tablespoons Woodford Reserve Bourbon
- 1/4 cup dried apricots, diced
- 1/4 cup golden raisins
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup dried cherries
- 1/2 cup chopped, toasted hazelnuts
- 8 ounce brie, round
- Minced fresh thyme and parsley
Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and simmer until the sugar dissolves. Stir in bourbon, dried fruit and toasted hazelnuts. Bring to a light simmer, remove from heat and set aside.
Place brie round on a baking dish that can go from oven to table, and also be used for final display (we used an iron skillet.).
Bake brie at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, until slightly puffed and warm.
Garnish with the fruit syrup mixture and fresh herbs. Serve with crackers.
(Note: You can use any leftover syrup for another brie, or as a garnish for pound cake or ice cream.)
