Baked Brie with Balsamic Rosemary Cranberry Sauce

Baked Brie with Balsamic Rosemary Cranberry Sauce

Ah, it’s that time of year again, the time of year when this little tart berry, the cranberry, becomes the star of the show. See ya later apples, it is time for the cranberry!

Are you the family that makes their cranberry sauce/chutney? Are you the type of family that loves that straight from the can, ridges still on it, jellied cranberry?

I have the privilege of being a part of both of those families.

My family, mainly my Mom, is a big fan of the canned cranberry. Slide it on a plate, slice it up, and it is ready to serve. Smash a little bit over some turkey and you have yourself a wonderful little bite.

Ingredients

Wrap the brie in dough

Mike’s family is a big fan of the homemade cranberry sauce. I love to take a dollop of the warm cranberries and put it on top of a sweet potato. Mmm! Perfection.

I like cranberry both ways, so I don’t want to hear how the canned stuff is gross or I don’t want to hear about how homemade cranberry sauce takes too long. This is not a debate. It is just an open appreciation for all forms of cranberry during the holiday that requires no gifts, just a crapton of food!

Brush with Butter

Top with cranberry sauce

In honor of the cranberry, I have the perfect holiday appetizer for you! It is a cranberry sauce that is flavored with rosemary and balsamic syrup. Totally unique and totally easy! From start to finish, this app is done in 30 minutes. Bake this up and give it to your guests while the rest of the Thanksgiving dinner finishes up. They will be floored.

I was. That is why I ate half of this on my own before I had to wrap it in foil and hide it in the back of the fridge. That’s real life, people.

  • 1 Tablespoon Water
  • Pinch of Salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  1. This recipe sounds delicious. I am wondering if it can be baked ahead and then re-heated in the microwave? I want to bring this to work for our celebration there but would have to re-heat in the microwave.

    • Yes. Bake it ahead of time to cook the dough and then just heat it up at work. It might be easier to slice and serve if it isn’t cooked too hot in the microwave.

  2. I wonder if this will taste just as good with a raspberry or cherry variation. Eitherway baked cheese with tarty fruit seems like a bangin’ combination. Will definitely give it a go! x

  3. This has to be one of the most beautiful food images ever! It has my mouth watering and looks divine! Pinned it for later!

  4. I could curl up inside of crescent roll dough and take a nice little snooze. Add in this brie and cranberry beauty and I could snack and THEN snooze. Perfect.

  5. My mom is totally the canned cranberry jelly fan! She’d just slide that baby right out of can, watch it jiggle a little and slice it up. Only her and my sister-in-law would touch it! Me? I like the real stuff. Also this, yeah my brother and I were just discussing apps for T-giving, I’m emailing this now!

  6. Just saw this on Instagram and came right over to get the recipe. Fantastic!! So incredible. Your pics are great too. Thanks for the inspiration. Share on our Brag About It party!!

    This is bound to become my fave Thanksgiving/Christmas appetizer. Very vest wishes ~ Sharon and Denise @BeBetsy.com

  7. Baked brie is all the proof I need that good does exist in the world. And with puff pastry and cranberries? I’ll take my own wheel please.

  8. Cranberry sauce in all forms is fine by me :) And I LOVE this variation on baked brie!

  9. That gooey cheese topped with sweet and tart goodness is calling my name. My family loves the canned stuff. I love homemade. Each year, I’m out voted, so there’s always a log of can molded sauce on the table.

  10. Man, if that was served at my Thanksgiving table I might just claim the entire thing for myself! Looks amazing!! I love the cranberry + brie combo. Pinning for later! Thanks!

  11. It took all my might not to lick the last picture gooey brie oh yummy thanks for the recipe

  12. This is such a great holiday app! I love brie and love it even more when it is baked!! Can’t wait to make this one.

  13. What a perfect holiday appetizer!! I don’t believe the holidays are times for a debate on food either, it’s one of the few times of year where you can just go with tradition, that may mean you cook everything from scratch or buy everything from the store. Whatever! I absolutely cannot live without canned green bean casserole, some people may look down upon me for it, but I don’t care!!

On both sides you’ll get the fresh, jammy fruit aromas as well as a slightly sweet and tart flavors. Where this pairing gets fun is once you get into the Brie (especially if it’s still warm). The carbonation and the acidity will cut through the richness of the cheese and the croissant adds some depth from texture and offers a bit more savory qualities. […]
