Brie Moon ~ with savory Boursin cheese spread and oranges; serves 15-20
from Casey’s Cafe in Half Moon Bay
A fun and tasty way to serve brie. I like to cut it into a half moon. You can also leave it whole and just serve a “Full Moon.”
1 2 – 2.2 pound wheel of Brie, cut into the shape of a half moon. Trim the extra into slices to place around the edge of the serving platter
1 – 2 packages of Boursin, crumbled (1 for half moon, 2 for a full moon)
2 large oranges, zested
(Optional ~ toasted pumpkin seeds)
Place Brie on serving platter and cover with Boursin. It’s easiest to use a spreader that has been dipped in warm water to smooth out cheese. Trim the edges to smooth out. Sprinkle orange zest along the rind (not on the cut edge of a half moon). If you like you can sprinkle the pumpkin seeds on top of the orange zest or all around the moon for a fun addition to your buffet. Serve with bruschetta or another savory crisp bread.
