Caramel Pecan Brie by Not Your Momma's Cookie

Well, now I’ve gone and done something I said I would never do on the blog.

I went to the dark side.

The savory side.

In my defense, cheese courses straddle the line between sweet and savory and I’ve totally seen them on dessert menus. But, I always think, who chooses cheese over chocolate, cakes, or ice cream!? Not I.

But then, I met a lady who changed all of that.

For the non-Game of Thrones watchers, this is Olenna Tyrell. Not only is she strong-willed, she is feisty to boot. I can’t resist a feisty, little old lady.

There is only one thing you need to know about her.

She wants her cheese. NOW. (Cheese scene at about 3:38)

Now, I have no idea what weird, crazy cheese they were actually served. It was probably dragon milk cheese or something. I used brie instead which is totally the same thing, I bet.

Serve this easy and delicious cheese with my lemon cakes. You could serve the cheese after the lemon cakes, but I wouldn’t recommend it. You don’t want the House of Tyrell coming down on your head, do you?
