"Another fantastic recipe, I found on the Legendairy site. I saw this recipe being made at a show, it looked and smelled so good, and thought that I must try this recipe. I will be making this soon for a platter and hope to serve it with some warm crusty bread. Note: The trick with baking brie is to not be tempted to use a wedge of brie instead. It needs the crusty white mould exterior to hold in the melted creamy interior."
