1 fresh apple, cored and thinly sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar

Squeeze fresh lemon juice over apple slices and set aside. Place brie cheese on a microwave safe plate and drizzle with a generous layer of Molten Golden. Sprinkle with brown sugar, then top with apple slices in a single layer. Microwave for about 1-1/2 to 2 minutes, in 30-second intervals until Brie is melted. Serve with assorted crackers, pretzel chips or gingersnaps.

Note: During summer, use fresh South Carolina peaches. This recipe also works well with fresh pears or figs.
