Baked Brie Appetizer Recipe @pinch

Baked brie is an elegant and easy appetizer. Using pizza dough, rather than puff pastry or crescent dough, adds a rustic touch to this recipe. Apricot preserves add sweetness and there's a hint of orange liqueur. We loved the crunch that slivered almonds add. This baked brie appetizer will be popular whenever you serve it. Great for a friend's night in, a holiday appetizer, or a party. I first had this at my brother's house when my family was there for Thanksgiving. I just served this at a ladies' lunch last Saturday at my house, and it went over like gangbusters. It's so good...I think I need an excuse to make it again. When you purchase the brie, it will have a "skin" on it that is usually white. With this recipe, you will want to slice off the top and sides. You can eat the "skin," so don't worry about leaving it on the bottom.
