Brie with Cranberry Butter and Pistachios

Yield: 6-8 servings

Preparation Time: and total time: 30 min



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Combine cranberries and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer. Cover and cook for 5 minutes - the cranberries will pop!

Using an immersion blender*, puree until smooth.

Add syrup, brown sugar and cinnamon and stir to combine.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes until mixture thickens.

Remove from heat and add vanilla. Set aside.

In the meantime, spray an 8- inch pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line pan with enough parchment paper so edges overlap about 1 inch on each side.

Place brie in center of pan - do not peel coating from the cheese.

Bake uncovered 8 minutes or until brie is soft and partially melted. Remove pan from oven and grabbing both ends of parchment paper, carefully lift the brie and slide onto a serving plate.

Top brie with 1/8 to 1/4 cup cranberry sauce and 1/2 to 1 tablespoon nuts. Serve immediately with toasted bread or crackers.

*If you don't have an immersion blender, place mixture into a blender or food processor taking care not to overfill as hot liquids expand. Puree until smooth. Transfer mixture back to the saucepan and continuing following the recipe.

Leftover cranberry butter should be refrigerated and will keep for up to one month.
