Baked brie, right out of the oven!

I got this wonderful recipe from a close friend.  It is a simple, delicious appetizer that is perfect for this time of year when the air is crisp and the leaves start to turn.  And it couldn’t be easier to make – it just needs to be assembled and heated!  Photos courtesy of the lovely Brigid.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz brie  – I used a 7 oz wedge because I couldn’t find an 8 oz wheel
  • 1/2 cup apple diced small, give or take (precision is not necessary here!)
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries (eg, Craisins)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter (or just super soft butter)

Directions

  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine the apples, pecans, cranberries, cinnamon, brown sugar, and butter
  • Slice the brie in half horizontally (like you’re making a sandwich) and separate the two halves
  • Place one half of the brie on an oven proof plate, cut side up.   Cover with half the apple mixture.
  • Put the top half of the brie sandwich on (rind side up), then cover it with the other half of the apples
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes, basically until the cheese is as gooey as you want it!  Serve with crackers or french bread, or eat with a spoon when no one is looking.
