Difficulty - Easy
This quick appetizer is a very elegant one with incredible flavors. The sweetness of the fig preserves blends incredibly with the smooth, creamy brie, and the crunchy walnuts add a nice texture to the underlying spiciness from the red-pepper and rosemary spiked oil.

One of my family’s favorite snack foods is traditional quesadillas, or toasted tortillas with melted cheese. Here, I’ve prepared them with a slightly French twist, using a savory Brie. Quesadillas are perfect finger food for a large party but, unless you have a skillet that is large enough to hold two tortillas, it’s easiest to use two skillets.

This recipe may be simple to prepare, but the results are anything but! The entire dish takes about 10 minutes to prepare and is as tasty as it is impressive-looking. The pinwheels can be made up to an hour before serving.

This combination of creamy Ile de France Brie, flavorful roast beef and tart watercress creates a wonderfully light, refreshing Spring sandwich. To complete this authentic tea sandwich, cut off the crusts and serve with a light red wine (such as Pinot Noir) or a tall glass of iced tea with sprigs of fresh mint. The sandwich can also be served whole (with crusts on) as an individual serving.

Sweet and crunchy, creamy and decadent, this dessert has it all. Try these blintzes for a special brunch, too. When cooking with Brie or other soft-ripened cheeses, place it in the freezer for a few minutes before adding it to the recipe. This ensures that the cheese will not melt too quickly during cooking.
