Baked Brie with Walnuts, Cranberries & Honey
Recipe type: Snack
Serves: 2
  • 125g (4.4 oz) brie round, unwrapped and at room temperature
  • Scattering of walnuts, chopped roughly
  • Scattering of dried cranberries
  • About 2 tablespoons of runny honey (or piece of honey-comb)
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180C (360F).
  2. Place the brie into a brie ceramic dish if you have one, and top with walnuts and dried cranberries. Alternatively, place the brie onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (baking paper) and top with walnuts and dried cranberries.
  3. Place the brie (uncovered) into the middle of the oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes, until the surface feels soft when gently compressed.
  4. Remove and, if not serving immediately cover either with the ceramic dish lid or place a piece of foil lightly over top - this will help the brie retain its heat from the oven to the table.
  5. When ready to serve, drizzle over some honey and serve with crusty bread or crackers.
Apparently it's best to avoid triple cream bries, as they become too runny when baked.
You could just as easily bake a camembert, if you prefer.
While I used a small round of brie, the same process applies for a bigger round.
To serve, you can slice the round into wedges or, if you don't like the rind, you can slit the top open in a cross pattern, peel back the edges and dip your crackers/bread directly into the melted cheese.
