  • 3/4 cup cranberry sauce
  • 1 16-ounce brie round
  • Zest of one orange
  • 2/3 cup walnut pieces
  • Crackers for serving
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Remove the top of the rind from the cheese using a serrated knife, and discard the rind. Place the cheese, cut side up on an oven safe plate or bowl. Just make sure to use a larger plate or a bowl so your cheese doesn't start oozing off the plate like mine is in the above photo. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven and top with the cranberry sauce. Bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until the cheese is soft and warm. Sprinkle the top with orange zest and walnuts.
  4. Serve immediately with crackers.
For a simple cranberry sauce combine 4 ounces cranberries , 1/3 cup orange juice, and 1/4 cup sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce to medium and simmer till thickened and cranberries have popped. For extra flavor add 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg and cinnamon.
