As the temperature cools, I'm always seeking easy recipes that can be thrown together for having a friend over in the backyard (socially distanced, of course). Here's one of my go-to feel good fall treats: a super simple baked brie with gourmet jam; I am partial to the line of jam from Eat this Yum! that we carry at Bonboni. I got this delicious brie from Wild Olive Provisions in this Historic Shaw Neighborhood where I live and work, but if you aren't local to St. Louis, visit your local cheese shop and ask for their recommendation for brie for baking.

Best of all, it bakes up beautifully in our ceramic brie baker with wood spreader.
