Baked Brie with Cranberries and Candied Walnuts – Yum!

7 Jan

I love serving this brie cheese recipe with rice crackers when we have friends over. It only takes about 10 minutes to prepare and then you throw it in the oven – easy as pie!

Baked Brie with Cranberries and Candied Walnuts


  • 1 round of double churned brie cheese
  • 1 cup of dried cranberries
  • 1 cup of walnuts
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 cup of brown sugar


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat and then whisk in the brown sugar. Take off the heat and let cool for twenty minutes, whisking every five to keep butter and brown sugar from separating. Then stir in half of the walnuts to coat and place them onto wax paper to let the mixture harden.

Cut the brie in half and stuff with cranberries and the rest of the butter and brown sugar mixture. Put the top back on and cover with the remaining cranberries and walnut. Put in the oven and bake for 25 minutes until good and melted. Take out and transfer to a pretty plate, then sprinkle with the candied walnuts. Cut into pie-shaped wedges (or adorn with a cheese knife) and serve. Low fat? No. Melt in your mouth good? Definitely!
