Brie with Jeweled Fruit Compote

Photo: Johnny Miller; Styling: Sarah Smart

This lovely appetizer is about as quick and easy as it gets--as tasty, too. You don't even need to let the cheese come to room temperature first; the warm fruit that goes on top will soften it up. Serve with crostini or crackers.

Yield: Serves 16 (serving size: 1/2 ounce brie and 1 tablespoon compote)
