A delicious, colorful, and simple holiday appetizer of brie topped with dried cranberries, pecans, and honey.
I am a cheese-aholic. I absolutely love cheese. It encourages my bread habit too (and I'm a bread lover as well). I'm perfectly happy with plain brie spread on french bread slices, and that's how I used the first half of this wheel of brie, but I wanted to try something new and different. That is how this lovely appetizer happened.
I always have craisins and pecans in my pantry because I use them frequently in salads. I also keep honey on hand for when I make breads. I know that brie tastes great with sweet things and I always like a little crunch so I threw them all together for one delicious appetizer that can be spread on crackers or bread.
Cranberry Pecan Baked Brie
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 cup craisins (dried cranberries)
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 of a 19.6 oz wheel of brie
extra honey (optional)
In a small microwaveable bowl melt the butter with the honey. Stir in the craisins and pecans until thoroughly coated.
Place the brie in an oven safe pan and top it with the crasin/pecan mixture.
Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes until brie is warm, soft, and melty.
Drizzle some extra honey over all (optional).
Serve brie with bread and/or crackers.
