Baguettes w/ Butter & Brie | Twin Peaks

(Recipe originally published January 2015 for Fiction Kitchen Podcast Episode 5.)

"Brother Ben, this is the best damn sandwich I ever ate. It's a baguette with Brie and butter and I bought four of these damn things every day I was there. You gotta try this. Here, go ahead. Eat it. Go ahead!"

"Oh yeah. Mmm. This is incredible, Jer!"
–Twin Peaks, S.1 Ep. 3 (watch the clip here)

Jerry's Baguettes w/ Butter & Brie

1 Long Baguette, cut into 4 equal pieces OR 2 short baguettes
Brie Cheese
1/4 Cup (1/2 stick) Butter, room temperature (though you might need more because butter is amazing)
3 Tbsp. Apricot Jam (optional)

In a small bowl, stir together the butter & optional apricot jam until smooth & creamy.
Slice the Brie into ~1/4" thick pieces.
Cut the baguettes in half horizontally.
Slather butter onto the open baguette halves & then place Brie slices in a single layer on one slice of each bread pair.
If you're not baking your sandwiches, simply close & enjoy!
If you are baking your baguettes, only place a line of cheese in the center of the bread, so there is space on either side of the cheese so when it melts & spreads out it won't get crazy gooey.
Place the halves, buttered & cheese sides up, on a baking sheet & bake for 5 minutes in a 375ºF oven.
If serving for a gathering, slice the completed sandwiches into ~1 - 1 1/2 inch wide pieces.
