The pomegranate syrup is simple to make and you can use the extra to drizzle over desserts, cheeses and grilled meats. If it becomes too thick, just loosen it with a few drops of warm water.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 baguette (about 12 oz/340 g)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 7 oz double-cream Brie cheese
  • 7 oz triple-cream Brie cheese
  • 3 fresh figs (such as Black Mission)
  • 24 whole pecans toasted

Method

In small saucepan, bring pomegranate juice and sugar to boil over high heat; boil until syrupy and reduced to 1/4 cup, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut baguette into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick diagonal slices. Brush both sides with oil. Arrange on baking sheet; broil until golden, 1 to 2 minutes per side.

Slice Brie cheese into 24 pieces; divide evenly among toasts. Slice each fig into 8 wedges; place 1 wedge on each cheese slice. Top each with pecan. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)

Broil until cheese is bubbly, about 1 minute. Transfer to serving platter; drizzle each piece with 1/4 tsp of the pomegranate syrup.
