Baked Brie Topped W/ Cranberries

Maybe one of the easiest and tastiest appetizers out there. Wow, your crowd with some melty cheese this year. The compote on top can be made the day of, or in advance and store in the fridge. Be your fanciest (and laziest) self this season.


- 1 cup of fresh or frozen cranberries

- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup

- 1 tablespoon butter

- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

- 1/4 teaspoon salt

- 1/4 teaspoon pepper

- 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

- 9 ounces wheel of brie

- 1/4 cup chopped toasted pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a small baking sheet with parchment.

  2. Place cranberries, maple syrup, butter, rosemary and salt and pepper in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 3-5 minutes or until syrupy. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice. 

  3. Bake brie for 15 minutes or until soft. Carefully transfer brie to serving the dish*. Pour cranberry mixture over brie and garnish with chopped pecans. Serve immediately.

*alternately, you can bake your brie in a round serving dish (oven safe of course), or a brie baking vessel!
