Make an easy and elegant holiday appetizer by topping a round of baked Brie with sweetened cranberry sauce and toasted pecans. Serve with assorted crackers, gingersnaps, apple slices or pear slices.

How to Make It

Step 1

Trim rind from top of Brie, leaving a 1/3-inch border on top. Place Brie on a baking sheet.

Step 2

Stir together cranberry sauce and next 3 ingredients; spread mixture evenly over top of Brie. Sprinkle evenly with pecans.

Step 3

Bake Brie at 500° for 5 minutes. Serve with assorted crackers and apple and pear slices.

Step 4

*2 tablespoons orange juice may be substituted for spiced rum.

Chef's Notes

If you can't find a 16-ounce round of Brie, you can use a slightly larger round or  2 (8-ounce) rounds.  If you want a little bit less of the cranberry sauce mixture, use a 14-ounce can and it will be plenty.

I thought this was really good, but a bit too sweet and with a bit too much nutmeg. I will definitely make this again, but will likely reduce those two elements, because I found them overpowering.

I made this for Bunco at my house last week! Every last bite was eaten! It was super easy, very yummy, and a beautiful presentation!
