Let's Make It
Preheat oven to 425°F. Coarsely chop pecans. Chop jalapeño pepper. In a small bowl, combine jalapeño pepper and preserves and mix well. Cut brie in half horizontally.
Place one half of brie, cut side up, into a large baking pan. Spread half of the apricot mixture evenly over bottom half of brie. Top with half of the pecans and remaining half of brie, cut side up. Spread remaining apricot mixture over brie. Sprinkle with remaining pecans. Cut the baguette on a bias into twenty-four 1/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange the baguette slices around the brie. Spray with oil.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until baguette slices are golden brown and brie begins to soften. Remove from oven. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
