This warm starter brings out the deliciously creamy taste of Brie. In 5 simple steps, you’ll be sure to impress your guests with a puff pastry centerpiece that is wrapped in shaved prosciutto (optional) and complemented with fresh fig and honey jam and a drizzle of fig balsamic. We love to vary the recipe to work with what’s in the pantry and what’s seasonal in the moment. Try this recipe topped with The Gracious Gourmet Cranberry, Raspberry, Blood Orange spread instead of figs and finish with a drizzle of TAO raspberry balsamic. Almost any preserve, spread or chutney will work here with a final drizzle of your favorite balsamic. For a savory treat, replace spread/jam with an olive tapenade and finish with a fig or Traditional balsamic. No matter what combination of ingredients you choose, it’s best enjoyed directly out of the oven.
