Best App Ever? Quite Possibly.

My sister-in-law and her culinary Hercules of a mother win the award for Best Thing I Have Eaten at a Holiday Party this year. A coveted trophy, I know. Anyway, it’s Brie -- with dulce de leche. Great Jeebus! Why have we never thought of this before?! Simple, beautiful, and mind-blowingly delicious, this alluring app draws people in like a siren song on crack. For reals. Add it to the bar, buffet, or coffee table of your choosing to impress guests with your gastronomic genius. Party on, my friends!


Sweet Brie with Pecans
-- Slide a round of Brie onto a serving plate.
-- Spread a generous amount of dulce de leche evenly on top.
-- Garnish with toasted pecans in a fancy-schmancy pattern.
-- Serve at room temperature with the wafers of your choice.
-- Stand alongside your creation to accept the praise forthcoming.

What’s the best thing you’ve eaten at an event this year? As the holiday season prepares for its culminating events, perhaps someone will compile these goodies into a festive pantheon of savory and sweet delights and INVITE ME over to chow.

A Festivus miracle, indeed.

Looks wonderful! I think I might try putting the pecans on the brie and baking it for a few minutes, then adding the dulce de leche.

Shudda mentioned the large grapes hollowed out and filled with goat cheese -- nice savory/sweet taste; second in deliciousness to the brie

If the Dulce de leche is to thick then heat it for a few minutes so you can deal with it easier.
Thanks for coming.
