Cheese, fruit, and bread is the ideal combination. I've said it before, and I will certainly say it again. This Baked Brie is the perfect appetizer, I made it for all of my holiday gatherings. It was gone in minutes, no fail, every time. The combination of the brie, the cranberries, and the pastry, along with the sprinkle of rosemary is sweet, savory, and tangy all at once. Oooey and Gooey and so so good. Perfectly paired with table water crackers, apple slices, and your favorite red wine (or white, or rosé, or bubbly... or even sparkling cider... I really don't discriminate, ha!). Read on for the step by step recipe tutorial!
