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.

Dried Cranberries

I am going to be honest with you here. The fresh cranberries do not appeal to me at all. However, when they are dried, they become these sweet little gems that I just love to eat. They are great by themselves, added to salad, or in a delicious appetizer like this. Enjoy

Brie by itself is wonderful; however, by warming this up and dressing it up a bit, its even better.

Festive and Flavorful Cheese

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. It’s an appetizer that disappears quickly.

Serve in a cast iron skillet. This can be a beautiful appetizer to serve with elegance. Use a beautiful serving tray that is oven safe. If you are lucky enough to own a food grade heat lamp, your brie will stay perfectly warm.

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.
