How to Bake Brie with Jam

Ok, let’s get to this baked brie with fig jam recipe! Here’s how we make it:

  • Prep brie. Slice a thin, thin, THIN layer of the rind off of the top of the brie. This part is technically edible, but I like to scrape it off. You could skip this step, but I like to remove it, which will also make it easier to scoop out the cheesy goodness later.
