A warm slice of baked Brie is a welcomed appetizer at holiday parties. It’s easy to dress up this classic with a twist of delicious citrus. In this recipe, the cheese is topped with a mix of navel orange juice, orange zest, honey and walnuts. It’s baked until the walnuts and sugars are beautifully caramelized and the cheese is soft and warm.
