Whether entertaining over the holidays, or during any time of the year, this Cranberry Brie appetizer is the perfect dish!
What you need:
1 wheel of Brie Cheese
1 cup of frozen Cranberries
1 Tbsp of Margarine or Butter
2 Tbsp of Brown Sugar
1/4 cup of chopped Almonds or Walnuts (Optional!)
1/8 cup of Kahlua (Optional!)
In a sauce pan, melt the butter, add the cranberries and simmer until the cranberries are soft. Stir in the brown sugar and Kahlua. Let simmer until the mixture is thickened…. for approximately 10 minutes. Remember the mixture will thicken as it sits, as well. Remove from heat and stir in the nuts of your choice.
Slice off the top of the brie cheese wheel, but leave it in place. Next, place the brie cheese wheel in tin foil, (this makes it easier to transfer out of the oven and onto a serving tray). Bake in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove the brie cheese wheel from the oven and place it onto a serving tray. Then, remove the top of the Brie cheese wheel, and place the cranberry mixture on top. Serve with crackers and enjoy!
