This warm cranberry-walnut brie appetizer is one of the easiest appetizers I have ever made with only 5-10 minutes of prep.

Simple yet elegant, an absolute crowd-pleaser!
Once baked, it does tend to cool quickly; therefore, if serving this on a buffet, place it under a heat lamp to keep the brie soft. Alternatively, you could also place this on to of a warming tray to keep the brie soft for your guests. Cheese is one of our family favorite snacks. Sometimes, we work such long hours and are so tired when we get home that all we have for dinner is cheese and crackers.
Brie by itself is wonderful; however, warmed and dressed up a bit is even better.
Festive and Flavorful
This warm cranberry-walnut brie is a quick appetizer to make and your guests will thank you for thinking of making them this delectable soft cheesy, crunchy, and sweet snack. Often, this is one of the first appetizers to be gobbled up. While this can be made in a cast iron skillet, if you plan on a more elegant occasion for you and your guests, go ahead and place the brie in a pretty ceramic dish that can also be used to serve.
A Word on the Brie Rind
The rind of the brie is the outer layer of cheese that has come into contact with the mold and is generally a bit harder than the cheese itself. However, it is edible. Some people like the rind of the cheese while others do not. Serving the cheese warm with the cranberries, walnuts, and honey allows the guests to scoop out the parts they like to eat.
