Need something that takes less than 10 minutes to prepare? I modeled Cranberry Baked Brie after an appetizer my mother-in-law made on Easter. I had a quick turn around between work and book club.
No time to prep or cook, I needed something on the run. If you are looking for something similar, this is your recipe. Who doesn’t need an arsenal of fast and easy appetizer recipes? This brie can be served hot or room temperature.
Brie appetizers can work with so many different occasions. Book club, parties, romantic night in, birthdays, potlucks and more. The list goes on and on.
Cranberries are associated with the holidays, but this brie with cranberries recipe can be used at get togethers year round. Why are poor cranberries banned to just the holiday season?
Cranberries are also full of antioxidants and other fabulous nutritional benefits. Not to mention delicious.
Brie has a rich and creamy flavor which goes great with a sweet nut topping, which gives it a great soft but crunchy texture. Tart cranberries and sweet apricot preserves make a well-rounded flavorful dish that everyone will love.
And now after writing this and editing these photos, I’m off to the grocery store to buy myself more brie to make another batch.
