Cranberry Sauce

  • 12-ounce bag of cranberries, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Baked Brie

  • 8-ounce round brie cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

For the Cranberry Sauce, in a saucepan bring the cranberries, honey, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg with 3/4 cup water to a simmer in a medium saucepan. Cover the mixture and allow it to simmer on medium-low heat for 7 to 10 minutes. Turn the mixture off when the cranberries start to burst and the mixture is thickened.

For the Baked Brie, slice off the top rind of the brie and scrape out a small amount of cheese. Place the cheese in a small baking dish lined with parchment paper. Mix the cranberry sauce, brown sugar, vanilla and zest. Sprinkle walnuts on top.

Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until the cheese is gooey. Serve immediately with a variety of crackers and bread.
