No fancy recipe here. Just gooey brie with tart cherries and an ample amount of bread.
- Double cream brie
- 1 cup fresh cherries
- 1 tsp butter
- 1 tbsp raspberry jam
- Dippers: crusty bread and apple slices
Oven needs to be at 400F.
Wash cherries and cut in half. Throw into a sauce pan with butter. My cherries were quite tart so I needed the jam to add a bit of sweetness. The cherries just need to be lightly coated in the butter/jam sauce.
Shave off the rind from the top side of the brie. Place cheese in brie baking dish or use a regular baking pan.
Top the brie with the glisteny cherries. Bake until cherries are bubbling and brie is oozing, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Now get those cheese dippers ready!
