Caramel Apple Brie

1/2 c. butter

2 1/4 c. brown sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

1/4 c. heavy cream or half and half

1 - 4-6 oz round of brie

apple marmalade

1/2 c. toasted, chopped pecans

4 medium granny smith apples

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the brown sugar. Mix well into the butter, stirring for about 2 minutes on a medium heat until the mixture looks richer in brown. Add the vanilla and stir well. Next, remove from heat and add the cream and stir well.

Slice off the paper skin from the top of the brie and place on an oven proof plate. Set the oven to 300 degrees. Place the brie on a plate and brush with the apple marmalade. Place the marmalade topped brie into the oven and let this brown and get bubbly. This will take around 10-15 minutes. Take out of oven and transfer to a beautiful plate. Drizzle warm caramel over the top and top with toasted pecans. Slice the granny smith apples into wedges and place around the brie.
