Baked Brie with Rosemary, Honey, Cranberries & Walnuts

If you're wondering what to do with that bag of frozen cranberries leftover from the holidays and just can't handle yet another loaf of cranberry quick bread, here's an elegant, crowd-pleasing appetizer idea perfect for any occasion. Note that this can be made with dried cranberries as well.


1 wheel of Brie

¼ cup raw, organic honey

1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely minced

1/2 cup frozen or dried cranberries, (thawed, if frozen)

½ cup toasted walnuts, chopped (optional)

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Crackers or toasted bread rounds for serving


Preheat oven to 350' F. Remove the top rind of the wheel of brie and place in a small cast iron skillet, pie plate or other suitable oven-safe dish. Bake 10-15 minutes until softened, but not melted.

Combine honey, rosemary, cranberries, and walnuts (if using) in a bowl. Stir to mix, crushing some of the cranberries (if whole and not dried) with the back of a spoon. Tip: If the honey is too thick to work with, microwave it for a few seconds to thin it a bit.

Remove brie from oven and sprinkle with the salt. Spoon the cranberry mixture over the top and serve with crackers or toasted bread.
