An easy appetizer to make for the holidays with layers of flavor, Baked Brie with a Roasted Fig Walnut Honey Topping.
Do you ever just sit and listen to Christmas Songs? I mean really listen.
Some of them are hilarious, like there is one that they play in Texas entitled “They Just Don’t have White Christmas’ in Texas.” The lines to the song crack me.
Then there are the fun songs like … Jingle Bells… or … Grandma Got Ran over by a Reindeer.
Then the classics like … Silent Night… or …. White Christmas.
And then my favorite, the one we always sing before the candle light service on Christmas Eve.
O Holy Night!
Do you guys sing that song?
I can remember singing it when I was little, we would start singing and then about half way through the song the room we were standing in was completely lite by all the small candles all over the room. I think growing up that was my favorite part, I felt like such a big kid being able to hold my candle and sing with the adults.
Though, now that I am grown and have done that service for years I finally realized the impact of the words we were singing. Have you ever really listened to the words of this song?
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth!
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till he appear’d and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!
Oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine
Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine
Oh night divine
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name

This looks yummy and want to try it but in the ingredients it says 2 Tbs olive. Is that olive oil and when is it used in the recipe.
Yes, it should be used to drizzle on the figs before they bake. I adjusted the recipe to state that. Thanks Patsy!
Fresh figs and melty brie…yessss! I was totally planning to make phyllo-wrapped baked brie on Christmas, but this has officially changed my plans!
Ohh… the phyllo wrapped brie sounds pretty stinking awesome too girl!
