“SO delicious, and the topping isn't too sweet. I often make the topping in advance, then just heat the whole thing together right before serving. I usually make this for my annual cookie exchange, and everyone raves about it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine everything except the brie in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Cover, reduce heat and simmer 30 mins, stirring frequently.
  2. Uncover and cook 5 more minutes, or till slightly thickened. Cool to room temperature.
  3. Cut a circle in the top rind of the brie, leaving a 1/4" border. Carefully remove center circle of rind from cheese, leaving border intact.
  4. Place the brie in a pretty pie plate or on a small ovenproof platter.
  5. Spread cranberry mixture over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 mins, or just till cheese is bubbly.
  6. Serve immediately with french bread, crackers, or slices of apple or pear.
