Description

If you've never made baked brie before today, you are in for a real treat. Our addition of cranberries and pecans makes this a wonderful entertaining appetizer that's perfect for any time of year. 

The tart fruit and the crunch of the nuts contrast perfectly with the rich, earthy flavor of a buttery warm brie. 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1- 7 ounce wheel of Brie cheese
  • 1 1/2 tbsps raspberry preserves
  • 1/4 cup chopped raw pecans
  • 2 tbsp raw pistachios, chopped
  • 2 tbsp dried cranberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.  Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Remove the brie cheese from the packaging (don't remove the rind, it's edible) and place it on the lined baking sheet
  3. Spread the preserves on top of the brie. Add the pecans, pistachios, and cranberries and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until it feels soft to the touch ( don't press too hard)

Notes

  1. You can also use fig jam or honey
  2. If you prefer you can also microwave the brie for 2 -3 minutes
  3. Serve with crackers, crusty bread and grapes, and apples
  4. Add it to your holiday cheeseboard
  5. Serve immediately while still warm
  6. You may drizzle some balsamic glaze before serving to add that contrast of sweet, savory and tangy.
