Instructions for Spread

Soak Sunsweet® Pitted Dates and Dried Apricots for 4 hours, or up to overnight.

Add ¼ cup water and the soaked dried fruit to a food processor with lemon zest and cinnamon. Blend into a thick paste. Store in a jar and refrigerate. Yields ~2 cups of spread.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).

Toss chopped rosemary with oil on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread the herbs out. Place the Brie on the center so it covers the herbs. Slice top surface of Brie rind off, leaving the sides and bottom of the wheel intact.

Add Apricot Date Spread on top of exposed cheese surface and sprinkle with chopped walnuts.

Bake 15-25 minutes, until cheese is soft and warmed through as desired. Use a knife to test for softness. Sprinkle herbs on top for serving.

Serve with crackers, bread slices, fruit, or any dippers you like!
