Baked Brie Cranberry Sauce recipe is an easy and elegant appetizer to serve during the holidays! Add chopped Maple Pecan Nuts for some delicious texture and serve with a variety of crackers!
I love this time of year when there are plenty of fresh cranberries to enjoy! Those tart berries sure are delicious when you add them to different dishes, and it’s such a fun dish to watch transpire into a sauce. I especially like the sound of the berries popping as they begin to cook and release thier juices.
I have an easy recipe that I follow every year; Ruby Red Cranberry Sauce, but this year I did mix it up a little. I used maple syrup instead of sugar. Same delicious sauce, but without the refined sugar. I’m saving the sugar for cookie recipes. Makes perfect sense, right? 😉
Cranberry sauce topped on some brie cheese is a delicious combination. The two makes a super quick and elegant appetizer and gets eaten pretty quick.
Cut a small hole in the center of the brie scooping out a portion to make room for the cranberry sauce. Put this in the oven just until the cheese begins to get nice and gooey!
I served this with crackers, but sliced green apples would be delicious too!
Baked Brie with Cranberry Sauce
- Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Line a small pan (round cake pan works well) with parchment paper.
- Cut a small circle into the rind of the cheese forming a shallow hole. Add about ⅓-1/2 cup of cranberry sauce. Bake until cheese begins to melt and sauce begins to bubble. Remove from heat and top with chopped pecans. Serve with crackers or slicked bread.
