I can’t think of this Warm Brie Appetizer with Cranberries and Walnuts without thinking of France. Our daughter was married there and lives in Paris so we visit often…which means cheese eating has become part of our lives!

Brie is a soft French cheese made from cow’s milk. It’s fantastically creamy and dreamy with a fairly mild flavor. Brie is surrounded by a rind that is usually eaten, but doesn’t have to be. There are many varieties of Brie with subtle flavor differences. For this recipe I use a double or triple cream Brie.
Simple How To:
The best part about this little appetizer, besides the way it looks, tastes and how happy it will make anyone that eats it, is that it’s also very easy to make. Simply use a knife to slice the rind off the top of the cheese, top with orange juice soaked dried cranberries and walnuts and pop in the oven for 15 minutes. Et Voila! A sweet and savory appetizer that everyone will be gathering around!
