Apple Cranberry Baked Brie
Apple Cranberry Baked Brie is the one baked brie recipe you’ll want to make over and over again this fall, if only to devour the apple, cranberry and walnut compote.
I’m throwing it back with this baked brie today. I always fall into some sort of throwback cooking routine around my birthday. Being another year older (and supposedly wiser) is both exciting and stressful. Generally I want to run back under the covers and pretend that it’s not happening, like somehow my bed is the place where time stands still for a bit. However the truth is, absolutely nothing happens when you turn that year older.
Really, nothing happens.
There’s a ton of celebrating (whoever doesn’t give themselves an entire birthday week is seriously missing out), but then the clock strikes midnight and…. yep another year older and not magically wiser. I never seem to learn this lesson and every year naively think some grand epiphany is waiting for me on the morning of my birthday… Maybe it happens at least once in your lifetime?
I know, my expectations are way to high for this whole birthday thing. I’m going to crawl back into bed with this apple cranberry baked brie to make myself feel a little better (and maybe even stop time…?).
This baked brie is one of the simplest appetizers I’ve ever made and it’s also the one that most represents fall to me. The apples, cranberries and walnuts in the compote bring just the right amount of sweet tartness to the savory puff pastry wrapped brie. You’ll watch this disappear within mere moments after setting it out on the table.
There’s nothing like oozing gooey cheese to bring family and friends together, amIright? 😉
