Darlings, a cheese course/starter is always a winner. And if you can spice it up with some goodies, it can be made extra special. I mean, I’m all for a generic cheese platter, but this brie topped with figs, honey and sprinkled with thyme leaves is a game changer! Just ask my hubby…and no, he’s not biased.
What makes it special…
The ingredients make this special and there are only 4 so it’s also super easy! Assembly required.
Brie Topped with Figs and Honey
- Brie – I typically go for a round because it’s most common in the store and the halves seem a bit small
- Fresh Figs (make sure to rinse them first)
- Honey (my husbands aunt makes fresh honey in Maine so we used that, but you could use any brand…or if you want, use agave)
- Fresh Thyme leaves
Place the brie on a nice plate (I went with this small cake stand that fit perfectly with my Mackenzie Childs Fall theme at our house). Note: If you prefer your brie softened, you could bake at about 350 degrees for about 5 min. Then cut the figs in half and place on top of brie. Drizzle the honey and sprinkle with fresh thyme leaves. Ét voila!
