For this baked brie holiday appetizer recipe we were able to buy everything we needed at Trader Joe’s. The Martin-Collet Double Creme Brie was decadent and perfect for this recipe. See below on how to score the brie.

All you need to do is take your pairing knife, a kitchen essential, and follow the lines of the brie and then cut lengthwise so you end up with little squares. This helps the orange marmalade, pomegranate seeds and chopped pecans mix into the delicious double creme brie as your guests are cutting into it and serving themselves.
