Warmed Spice-Cranberry Brie

By December 1, 2017 No Comments

This is one of my favorite appetizers to bring to a party especially this time of the year.  It’s so delicious and it’s bursting with all the season’s flavors-cinnamon, nutmeg, fresh orange and topped with toasted pecans. I promise every bit will be devoured!  This beautiful appetizer can be made in a snap! Trim rind from the top of the brie. Spread the cranberry filling on top and sprinkle with toasted pecans. Bake and serve hot with assorted crackers, gingersnaps, apple slices, pears, or baguette rounds.  I hope you enjoy this for a holiday party!
