Thanksgiving is this week and this easy appetizer- a cranberry brie topping for crackers will keep the guests happy while you work on the turkey gravy! Make a big batch of the cranberries and serve it alongside dinner. The bright red colors and green rosemary also make it a keeper for Christmas and all the entertaining with the holidays!
1 cup Cranberries
Juice of 2 Oranges
1/2 cup of Water
1 teaspoon of Brown Sugar (and then enough brown sugar to pat over brie wheel)
Dash of vanilla extract
1 Brie cheese wheel (I used a small wheel, for the holidays I would go larger and double recipe!)
Fresh Roughly Chopped Rosemary- teaspoon then some for garnish
Zested Orange Peel for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Bring orange juice and water to a boil. Add cranberries and once it boils again, add brown sugar and vanilla extract. Stir. Set to medium to low heat and allow flavors to simmer while brie bakes.
Shave rind off brie and pat brie with brown sugar.
Bake brie for 7 minutes.
Top the baked brie with cranberry mixture. Add orange zest and rosemary to top.
Serve with crackers or bread.
Are you hosting or a guest this Thanksgiving? We are hosting and I am so excited! I love hosting Thanksgiving but I could use a 12 hour nap when it is all over!
Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving or just a wonderful Thursday if you are not in the US!
