- Courtesy of of Little Qualicum Cheeseworks.

Ingredients:

Brie:

  • 1 wheel brie cheese (8-12 ounces)
  • citrus rind, mint leaves, or whole cranberries for garnish
  • assorted crackers or bread rounds
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup cranberry sauce (recipe below)

Cranberry Sauce:

  • 1 cup orange juice or apple cider
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 bag fresh or thawed frozen cranberries (12 ounces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)


Directions:

Brie:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
 Remove outer wrapping from brie wheel. Using a very sharp knife, remove the rind from the top of the wheel only, leaving the rind on the sides and bottom intact.
  2. Place brie in a shallow pie plate or casserole dish that is slightly bigger than the brie itself.
Spread the cranberry sauce over the top of the brie, to within 1/4 inch of the edge all the way around.

  3. Bake brie in the preheated oven until heated through; about 12-15 minutes.
  4. Serve in the casserole dish or transfer carefully to a serving plate. Serve warm with crackers or bread.
 Makes about 12-14 appetizer-sized servings.
Cranberry Sauce:
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine juice and sugar.
  2. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves.
  3. 
Add cranberries and continue simmering until cranberries pop and mixture has thickened; about 10-12 minutes.
  4. Stir in cinnamon, if desired.
  5. 
Serve warm or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to one week.
