Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • 12 sun-dried tomatoes drained and oil reserved
  • 2 garlic cloves peeled
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice fresh squeezed
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper fresh ground
  • 8 ounce brie cheese a wheel, 1/2 pound, thoroughly chilled
  • fresh basil leaves for garnish

Instructions

  1. Remove brie from refrigerator and cut in half horizontally. Brie must be thoroughly chilled to make this possible.

  2. In a food processor, combine basil, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, pepper and lemon juice.

  3. Process until a rough paste forms. Add the oil that dripped from the sun-dried tomatoes. Add a tad more from the jar if the mixture seems dry. It should be spreadable, but not too thin.

  4. Spread the bottom half of the brie with half of the sun-dried tomato mixture. Top with the remaining brie half, pressing together firmly. Top the brie with the remaining sun-dried tomato mixture.

  5. Bring to room temperature before serving. Serve with water crackers. May be made a day in advance. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill.
