Cranberry Rum Brie


prep 0:15       total 0:25


8 servings



1 tbsp. packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. rum or
orange extract
1/2 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce, or
lingonberry preserves
1/8 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg
8 oz. wheel of brie, at room temperature
2 tbsp. chopped nuts (walnuts or
assorted crackers


Preheat oven to 450°F. Peel off top rind of brie, leaving 1/4-inch edge (leaving sides/bottom of brie intact). Place brie in pie plate or shallow oven-proof dish. Combine sugar, extract, berries, and nutmeg; top brie with mixture, and sprinkle with chopped nuts. Bake 5-7 minutes or until cheese softens. Place brie on a serving plate; offer several appetizer knives so guests can scoop the melted brie onto crackers or toasted baugette slices.

You can use lingonberry preserves instead of the cranberries - in fact, I prefer them.
