Baked Brie with Cranberries and Almonds
INGREDIENTS n n n n n 3 Tbsp dried cranberries (Craisins) 3 Tbsp sliced almonds
4 tsp almond flavoured liqueur, such as Amaretto 1-225 g (8 oz) round Brie cheese (Prepared) 1 French baguette, thinly sliced and toasted on each side under the broiler
Note: A great recipe to try with the Gourmet du Village Brie Baker!
Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) TO PREPARE THE BRIE: Remove top rind of cheese, leaving rind on sides and bottom in tact. Place brie, cut side up, in Brie Baker. DIRECTIONS: In a small microwave safe bowl, combine the dried cranberries & liqueur. Microwave for about 20 seconds. Top prepared Brie evenly with marinated cranberries and sliced almonds. Place Brie Baker, without putting the lid on, in center of hot oven for 15 minutes.
