This baked brie Courtesy of Gourmet Du Village was the hit of our family's Easter dinner this weekend! The maple liqueur perfectly highlights the flavors of the brie while being balanced out by the almonds and cranberries. On top of being so delicious, it is also incredibly easy to make:
DIRECTIONS: In a small microwave safe bowl, combine the dried cranberries & liqueur. Microwave for about 20 seconds. Top prepared Brie evenly with marinated cranberries and sliced almonds. Place Brie Baker, without putting the lid on, in center of hot oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven (with oven mitts) & put Brie Baker cover on Baker to keep baked brie warm and soft until ready to serve. Place hot Brie Baker on a serving platter and surround with toasted baguette slices. Remove lid just before eating.
