Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt preserves and water in small pan over low heat. Brush melted preserves over top and sides of well-chilled brie.
Arrange plum slices decoratively on top of brie. Brush fruit with additional melted preserves. Sprinkle with walnuts.
Place brie on foil-lined baking sheet with low sides. Bake for 10-15 minutes in center of oven until heated through. Remove from oven and let sit for 2-3 minutes. With large spatula, carefully transfer to serving platter.
Serve with assorted Lahvosh crackers, torn pieces of Tuscan bread and pear slices.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is easy and elegant. I slice off the top rind. Also, I can only find plum jam (not preserves), but it works well and doesn't need to be melted on the stove -- instead, I heat the jam in the microwave for a minute or so with the water. I use the same amount of topping asked for in the recipe. Would be good with sliced almonds as a change from the walnuts.
Any seasonal fruit may be substituted for the plums, such as nectarines, apricots or pears.
