- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Place the Brie on a baking sheet or baking dish. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the Brie is semi-soft and warm.
- While the brie is baking, combine the preserves and balsamic vinegar in a saucepan and heat until thick and bubbly. Remove from heat.
- Remove the Brie from the oven and place on a festive serving dish. Arrange the strawberries on top and drizzle with the heated preserves. Sprinkle with the nuts. Serve with crackers or toasted bread hearts.
