Gruesome cheese

My mother when first presented with this dish, commented “Oh no thanks, I couldn’t eat that, it’s GRUESOME” Gruesome cheese has since become a family favourite, with the exception of Mom.

1 large round Brie

½ cup walnuts, roughly chopped

¼ cup brown sugar

Splash of brandy

Preheat oven to 180° fanbake

Put brie on a small baking tray and bake for 5 minutes.  Meanwhile, mix the walnuts, sugar and brandy together.  Remove brie from oven and cover with the walnut mixture.  Return to oven for a further 10 minutes or until the walnuts have browned.

Serve with crackers
