Expert Tips

When slicing the Brie in half, use toothpicks to mark the middle and dental floss to cut the cheese round.

The Brie also can be served warm. Heat oven to 350º. Lightly brush cookie sheet with vegetable oil. Place filled cheese (do not add capers) on cookie sheet, and bake uncovered 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is soft and partially melted. Sprinkle with capers. Garnish as directed.

Assemble the Brie up to 24 hours ahead; cover and refrigerate. Garnish just before serving.
