    I love this recipe! Can't wait to try it. The apricot preserves sound like just the added touch and I love basil. I grow my own right outside my kitchen door. Thank you so much and I voted UP!

    I wouldn't have thought to combine apricot preserves with brie, but it sounds good! It would be something different to serve my granddaughters. I like the sounds of it!
