Cranberry Pecan Baked Brie (& Some Holiday Veggies!)

One of the great things about turkey dinners is getting to eat all the things that you really only eat with turkey. Like stuffing...and cranberry sauce. I've always loved cranberry sauce, but I really only eat it on Christmas and Thanksgiving. 

I made this recipe on Christmas, but I think it would be great anytime in the holiday season...or any other time for that matter! Cranberries and brie go really well together, and the pecans give it a little something different. It's a great appetizer, and is sure to be popular at your next party!

Cranberry Baked Brie
  • 1 wheel brie cheese
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce (adjust accordingly if your cheese is bigger or smaller)
  • 1/2 tsp. orange zest
  • 1/3 cup pecans
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place brie in an oven safe dish, and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, top with cranberry sauce and pecans, and return to oven to bake 5 more minutes, until cheese is melty. 

Serve in oven-safe dish, or carefully transfer to a different plate. Serve with crackers.

On a related note, another appetizer I made for Christmas was this veggie tray. I thought it was too cute not to share. There's not really a recipe...just arrange the veggies in a Christmas tree shape!


  1. Well, I ended up NOT eating any broccoli or cauliflower because the tree was just too well designed!

    Looking forward to checking out this blog in the future!
