sweet, creamy, HARDY appetizer, desert, or communal munchie. Excellent option when feeding a small gathering, everyone can gather around and experience together. This is a "wintery" dish, but is great year round, and great with wine!

- 2 apples or pears
- 1 round of brie cheese
- brown sugar
- splash of orange juice
Level of difficulty Easy
Cost Average budget
Cut off the top of the sour dough bread loaf. Hollow the bread out to make a bowl, saving the pulled chunks of bread in another bowl (for dipping!)
Chop apples or pears. Shake them up to coat with a little orange juice, then cook them in a skillet with a little butter. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and allspice to taste. Saute until the apples/pears are very soft.
Cut the rind/covering off of the brie. This is the most annoying part of the process. The outside should be edible, but the taste is gross.
After the apples are soft and the brie has bee prepared, "layer" the cheese and apples inside of the hollow bread bowl.
Put the bread bowl on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for about 45 minutes, or until everything is gooey and creamy. Stir it once or twice while baking.
Serve warm/immediately. Dip the bread chunks into the brie mix, or scoop it onto the bread.
