Wow! This is delicious! I made it just as written. We had lots of appetizers out, so had leftovers of most, and this was good reheated the next day.
This has been my go-to recipe for holiday season. Like other reviewer I sliced off top of rind and spooned a little of the warmed sauce over the brie then warmed the whole thing in micro. I substituted blackberry brandy cause that is what I had. I found this made enough sauce to spoon over 2 8-ounce wheels so could make it once and take to two different parties. I don't review many recipes because frequently there are already so many reviews but this one deserves to be highlighted
A really big hit and soooo easy!
I've made this twice now and each time it's the first appetizer to disappear. Everyone loves it. The first time I made it as written. The second time I decided to use rum instead of Brandy and after heating the mixture I puréed 3/4 of it in a mini food processor. The consistency of the purée made it easier to eat and wasn't as much liquid. I also heated the Brie and then put the warm compote on top. Wonderful and easy. Defiantly a keeper!!
Everyone loved it. Lots of fruit. (Next time I'll dice the figs and add a couple more, though.) I substituted a good amount of dried rosemary and it turned out great.
