I’ve been working with Libby’s recently and I was so excited to be asked to create a Thanksgiving recipe using their product. I chose to use Libby’s apricot halves. Apricots are a favorite of mine. I used to eat them with breakfast every day. Yum!
This appetizer couldn’t be simpler to make. It has plenty of fall flavor too. Apricots and pecans get spiced up with cinnamon, nutmeg and a splash of vanilla. The warm fruit tops melty brie for an appetizer that your guests will love! It will definitely keep them happy and willing to wait a bit longer for dinner.
(I’ve also got a fantastic giveaway at the end of this post, so keep reading!)
Here’s what you’ll need to make the appetizer:
Apricot and Pecan Topped Brie Appetizer
- 8 – 10 oz Brie
- 15 oz can Libby’s apricot halves
- 1/2 cup pecan pieces
- 1 tsp. vanilla
