Ever need to make a quick appetizer and you’re not quite sure what to make? Time is precious but you don’t just want to clunk down a bowl of chips on the table, right?

This week I made a new batch of jam, Vanilla Pear Jam to be exact. I wanted a way to showcase it for potential buyers and needed a recipe, preferably one that was quick and easy. I think I came up with one that can add a touch of elegance to any buffet table or can be served on the coffee table and shared amongst friends. Experiment with different types of jam to find a flavor that suits you. Enjoy!

Brie with Vanilla Pear Jam

2 tbsp. vanilla pear jam or jam of your choice
1 8 oz. round of Brie
5 wheat crackers (I used Wheat Thins)
¼ c. walnut halves
1 ½ tsp. melted butter

Warm up jam in the microwave for a few seconds and brush or pour over cheese round. Process 5 crackers with the walnuts in a food processor or crush by hand. Combine crushed cracker/walnut mixture with melted butter then press onto jam covered Brie. Serve with additional crackers. Makes about 8 servings

That sounds delectable. A perfect appetizer. You need to enter this in a contest. Pillsbury Bakeoff (hope they make wheat thins)
