Trader Joe's Unripened Brie, Feb. Spotlight Cheese, Uses?

I bought a small round of TJ's Unripened Brie a couple of weeks ago and aren't really sure what to do with it. I've never used brie in cooking and would like some ideas that involve things other than sliced on crackers, sandwiches and salads. It stated on their website that it would start producing a rind, which it has in a few areas. Also, the best by date is March 20th if that makes a difference. Any ideas Hounders?
I used some in a sort of gratin with grated potatoes, onion, and garlic. I cut up some of the brie, mixed it in - and baked the mix in a muffin tin. My cheese-loathing spouse ate two of them, finished off the leftovers flattened and sauteed, and has asked several times when we'll make 'em again.
[This was based on a Rachel Khoo recipe that called for Reblochon cheese.
My sister hit up the Princeton TJ location yesterday to stock up on wine. I told her to buy me several of the unripened bries but they were out of stock. I hope it is just temporary because I am obsessed with that cheese.
