Brie with Fig and Almond {no cook recipe}

Brie with Fig and Almond

Looking for an EASY appetizer? This is totally it!

On Christmas Eve day I was out doing some last minute shopping and dropped into Whole Foods to pick up a few things. I was admiring all of the international gourmet cheeses when I saw the demo station for this. I wasn't even hungry but for whatever reason, I thought, "What the heck, I'll have a bite anyway". Wow! It was literally so good that I immediately picked up all the items and decided right then and there that it was going on my Christmas Day menu. (Am I an advertiser's dream, or what??)

The sweet fig spread with the creamy French Brie on top of the salty "everything" crackers was to die for. Even my sometimes finicky daughters thought this was delicious.

The combo of ingredients makes this dish, but this fig
spread was heavenly - not too sweet, not too figgy -
just perfect!

Here are the ingredients (all from Whole Foods):

small wheel of French Brie, Mediterranean fig spread,
chopped Marcona almonds, Everything crackers

Simply unwrap the Brie, place on a plate and cover with the fig spread, then sprinkle the chopped almonds on top. Surround with crackers, broken into bite size pieces and serve with a cheese knife for spreading. Best when the Brie has come to room temperature.
