I saw this recipe a few weeks ago on Pinterest and knew I had to try it for our Christmas party. Oh my wow~ it was FABULOUS!
1 8″ round (quality) Brie cheese
1 Granny Smith apple
1 Honeycrisp apple
1 cup dried, sweetened cranberries
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (4 ounce) package slivered almonds, lightly toasted
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon almond extract
Place unwrapped Brie round in center of a 9-inch glass pie plate. Set aside. Washed, cored & cut apples into 1/2-inch chunks. In a medium-large mixing bowl, combine chopped apples and dried cranberries; add brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and almonds, stirring until ingredients are thoroughly combined. Drizzle melted butter over apple mixture and stir until well-coated. Add almond extract, stir in until combined. Pour apple mixture over and around the Brie resting in prepared baking dish. Bake uncovered for in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes, or until cheese is soft and bubbling in the center. Serve immediately with water crackers. Enjoy! Recipe from My Missouri Kitchen.
I saved the leftovers from the party last night and it was delicious as breakfast this morning!
