Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 2 cups fresh whole cranberries, washed
  • ½ cup water
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 round of brie
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • crackers or sliced and toasted baguette bread for serving
  1. Make the cranberry compote by simmering the fresh cranberries, water, and sugar in a small pot over medium heat. Allow to simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries pop and the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Add the balsamic vinegar and simmer an additional 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and transfer to another container. Use immediately or store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  3. Preheat your oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or brush the inside of your small round baker with oil.
  4. Using a sharp knife, cut just the very top rind of the wheel of cheese. Place the wheel cut side up on your baking sheet. Top with about ⅓-1/2 cup of the cranberry balsamic sauce and bake 12-15 minutes until brie is soft and melted.
  5. Serve immediately with crackers or a sliced baguette and additional cranberry balsamic sauce if desired.
