This is an old favorite of mine that I actually had for the first time years ago at a dinner party. I went to the dinner party with a friend, not actually knowing the hostess (nor do I still today), so I can’t really give them credit (sorry)… I serve it often at dinner parties and served it the other night when I was doing a special showing of my jewelry to friends. There wasn’t any left at the end of the night, so I think it was enjoyed by all!
Ingredients: 1 pound wheel of Brie, 1/4 package of Craisins (or any dried cranberries), a few tables spoons of brown sugar & 1/4 cup sliced almonds
Serves: Approx 8
Preheat oven for 350 degrees.
Slice the wheel of Brie horizontally through the middle with a long sharp knife.
Sprinkle brown sugar on the bottom of the Brie slice, fully covering it.
Carefully place the top half of the Brie slice back on the bottom (it’ll all look like a giant sandwich).
Place the Brie “sandwich” on a slice of wax paper on a cookie sheet or in a small casserole dish (warning: it may melt out sides a bit & that’s okay).
Put the brie in the oven for about 10-15 minutes or until the Brie has melted a bit & brown sugar has lightly caramelized.
