Baked Brie with Basil Lemon Dressing

Serves 10-12 Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 10 minutes   Rated:

This recipe is simply divine. I have no other word for it. You will completely be addicted to it, I mean, what’s not to love about cheese, melting, with lemony pesto slathered all over it? Add some Nutty Seeded Crackers and you are in entertainment heaven. (Not the dancing, singing kind, the 'come on over and eat great food kind’!)

The recipe first appeared in my 2016 Calendar, which has long sold out. My next suggestion was going to be to wrap the entire thing in Iced Puff Pastry and bake it that way, but I am pretty sure you wouldn’t want to hear about that. (It’s a talent...and all bad! No apologies.)

Enjoy...and leave me a comment on Instagram, Facebook or here...with your own decadent pics.
