Expert Tips

Top baked Brie with 3 tablespoons drained julienne sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil and herbs (from 8-ounce jar) and 1 tablespoon toasted pine nuts. Or top with your favorite flavor of chutney.

To toast nuts, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350¦ oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasion-ally, until golden brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
