Combine the thyme, basil and chives in a small bowl. Cut the Brie into 1/8” slices. Drizzle the cut sides of the baguette with the olive oil mixture. Sprinkle half the herb mixture over 1 of the prepared baguette halves. Top with the Brie and sprinkle with the remaining herb mixture. Top with the remaining baguette half. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and foil. Place between 2 baking sheets and top with a heavy weight. Chill for 5-8 hours. To serve, remove the foil and plastic wrap and cut into 1” slices.
