Baked Brie with Golden Raisin Compote

Category Finalist: Starters and Drinks. "This flavorful appetizer is great because most of the prep work can take place before guests arrive. The Brie is rich enough to carry the appetizer with a tart and sweet compote. To ease slicing, keep Brie chilled until ready to use." --Elizabeth Bennett, Mill Creek, WA

Yield: 20 servings (serving size: 2 topped baguette slices)
