Strawberry Madness Part 2 ~ Strawberry -Glazed Brie

This is the second in a series of strawberry recipes that I made with my daughter over the July long weekend. While our jam was setting, we made this quick, easy recipe. It is absolutely delicious. 

I made one slight alteration from the original recipe: I only used 1 round of brie with half of the strawberry topping. The other half of the strawberry mixture I tossed with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar until salad dressing consistency, then served over some mixed salad greens, and topped it with sliced strawberries, goat cheese and toasted pecans.

Brie recipe is from Canadian Living Magazine
"Surround this gooey warm cheese with crisp crackers to scoop up the cheese and some of the tangy topping. You can use an 8-oz (250g) wedge of cheese if you can't find the rounds; however, the melting cheese won't look as attractive."

3/4 cup strawberries, mashed
4 tsp packed  brown sugar
2 tsp lemon juice
1/8 tsp cinnamon
2 rounds Brie Cheese

In small saucepan, combine strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 6 minutes or until thickened; let cool slightly. Remove rind from top of Brie; place on ovenproof platter. Spread strawberry mixture evenly over top; bake in 300°F (150°C) oven for about 12 minutes or until cheese is softened but not melted.
