    2 Tbsp. brown sugar
    1 Tbsp. honey
    1/4 cup sliced almonds

Slice brie in half horizontally. Place bottom half of brie on 10x15 inch jellyroll pan. Combine jam, brown sugar, honey and almonds; spread over cut side of brie. Replace top half of brie, rind side up. Sprinkle with brown sugar and almonds. Bake at 375° F for 10-12 minutes (or microwave 2-4 minutes) or until soft. Then broil 3 inches from heat for 3-4 minutes or until brie is bubbly and almonds are caramelized. Serve with cookies. Suggested wine pairing: Four Daughters Sparkling Frontenac Gris.
