Baked Brie Recipe...
Is the perfect solution for an easy appetizer for any occasion.
And with the Christmas Holiday being only 3 short weeks away, we can all use a few easy appetizers you can make with minimal time involved.
I know, I know it seems like we just did the whole Christmas thing. Please tell me I'm not the only one that feels this way???
But here we are again and whether you're a big planner ←kinda me, or not having a few go to appetizers you can make quickly is always a win.
So relax, cause this Baked Brie recipe really only requires warming up the oven & about 15-20 minutes time.
Yes, it's really that Easy! Well other than maybe a quick trip to the market to get your wheel of brie cheese.
Anyway, if you plan it all right you can just grab it on your regular grocery run..
Cause I don't know what it is about shopping in the month of December, but it seems like people tend to be a little more impatient <<< like REALLY need to be on the Naughty list! haha!
It kinda makes ya wanna hide in your own little world of internet shopping. And trust me, I've done my fair share of that this year.
Guess that's the perfect way for some of us "Introverts" to get it done. Me being one of them!
So if you really want one less thing to think about for the Holiday you need to add this appetizer to your Nice list...
How to bake brie
It's really pretty simple and that's why I love it as an easy yet elegant appetizer.
Start by preheating the oven and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Once the oven is heated place the wheel of brie in the oven and heat.

This looks so good! Great way to use up leftover cranberry sauce!
Cranberries and brie were just made to go together 🙂 Looks perfect for a party!
I've often wondered what to do with the leftover cranberry sauce from a holiday dinner. What a great way to repurpose the sauce into a delicious appetizer.
