3 Panera Bread Cherry Vanilla/Pink Ribbon Bagels

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons sliced almonds

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 small wheel (about 8 oz) brie cheese

2 tablespoons cherry jam


*The white rind on brie cheese is perfectly edible and helps retain the cheese's shape as it bakes in the oven.


Preheat oven to 325°. Cut bagels into 1-inch cubes

Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Stir in almonds and cook until lightly toasted, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in cinnamon and remove from heat.

Center wheel of brie on a small round baking dish or glass pie plate. Spread jam over brie and top with almond mixture.

Bake until brie is very soft and scoopable, 7 to 8 minutes.

Place the dish on a trivet and serve with bagel cubes.
