WDW - Warm Cranberry-Walnut Brie


Here's a great fall appetizer! While we were in Carpinteria last month, my friend Luci made this (in her trailer!) and brought it down to the beach. A swarm of people (me being one of them) descended on her immediately and it was demolished in like 1 minute! A few poor husbands were in the water at the time and missed it entirely!

I happened to love melted cheese, and Brie is one of the yummiest melty cheeses you can eat. This dish has major WOW potential, and, it is so delicious and easy to make -you gotta try it soon.

Warm Cranberry-Walnut Brie
modified from Cooking Light

(8-ounce) round Brie cheese
2 tablespoons dried cranberries
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
1 tsp. fresh thyme

crackers - we used Wheat Thins

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Using a serrated knife, remove topmost rind from cheese; discard rind. Place cheese, cut side up, in a small ovenproof baking dish; sprinkle with cranberries, nuts and thyme. Drizzle with honey. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until cheese is soft and warm. Serve immediately with crackers.
