    Very elegant recipe, appropriate for fancy dinner parties. I had difficulty removing the brie coating, but the mix of flavors was superb and worth the effort. I used fresh mushrooms without a problem, and also substituted apple jack flavored brandy. Be careful not to burn the almonds when toasting - they brown quickly if left on a high heat.  -  16 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Wonderful but next time I will use less or no butter since the oil from the cheese plus the butter makes it very oily. Flavor is wonderful! I will make it again!  -  31 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was fabulous! I made this along with several other appetizers on Christmas Eve and this went first. I had several requests for this recipe and will definitely be making this again. Thank you for the great recipe!  -  27 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
