Ingredients

    • 1 (6-ounce) wheel of Camembert cheese
    • 2/3 cup brown sugar
    • 1/3 cup water
    • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    • 1/2 cup pecan halves
    • 2/3 cup heavy cream

Instructions

With a sharp knife, carefully slice off the top rind of the cheese.

In a saucepan, combine the sugar, water and pepper. Bring to a boil and reduce to half. Add the pecans and cream. Simmer until slightly thickened.

Place the cheese on a plate and while the pecan mixture is still hot, pour over the cheese and let sit 5 minutes. Surround with the sliced French bread.
