Baked Cranberry Walnut Brie with a homemade cranberry sauce is a stunning festive appetizer; perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas celebration.

Hello dear Brie!

Sorry, I obviously meant “hello, friends!” I was just destructed with the pictures and thoughts about this delicious appetizer. How’s been this Brie treating you so far? Oh well, I certainly wanted to ask you: “How’s this week has been treating you”.

I guess all these small talks are just useless today because all I can focus on is this Baked Cranberry Walnut Brie. Let me just post the recipe and get over this thing!

I must confess I never tried baked brie until this recipe. I thought there’s nothing special in this kind of appetizer even though I do like the way baked brie (or camembert) tastes on flatbreads and crostini. However, I was wrong! It is not that much about the flavour profile – though I think the flavour gets better once it’s baked. Baked brie is about the texture. All this rich and gooey goodness, and you need just a cracker to dig into this molten situation. Once it cools down and hardens, you’ll need a help of a knife, but the texture and flavour profile are still wonderful.

And you want to make it a super elegant festive recipe? Just top it with some cranberry sauce, walnuts, and fresh herbs. Red and green against white? That’s Christmas time!

Of course, you can use a store-bought cranberry sauce, but I recommend making a homemade batch; it’s so easy yet the flavour is much better. However, if you want to omit this step, please go ahead and use a jar from your store.

Either ways, it’s going to be so delicious!

Should I try any other toppings for baked brie? What’d you recommend?

Cheers for now and have a great weekend!

    Baked brie is heavenly! I love what you’ve done here and suggested it as an appetizer. Great idea! I’m going to suggest this to my mother-in-law who is in charge of the cheese board this year!

    Now you’ve got my attention here, Ben! I love brie, and you’re right that baking it totally does something special. (I love the “molten situation” comment. Perfect description!) Baked brie is always a holiday favorite in the appetizer category, but I love how you’ve put a Christmas spin on this with the cranberries, walnuts and herbs. This would be a huge hit in our house!
