Baked Brie with Cherry Orange Compote

Updated: Aug 24, 2020

Sweet cherry-line. Bah bah bah.



Brie! Again you say? We love ourselves some brie, this much is true. Unlike our "grilled version with tomatoes, we went the sweet route here with fresh cherry, and this time it's oven baked. If you favor yourself a nice sweet/savory combo (as we do), this is the route to take. Almost dessert like in nature, the versatility of this dish is unmatched! App, party dessert, after dinner snack...it all works.


Ingredients


Cherry Compote:

1 lb cherries (about 3 cups)

Juice of half an orange (3 - 4 tablespoons)

2 tablespoons granulated sugar or honey

A splash of vanilla extract

A splash of almond extract (optional)


Instructions

Wash and pit the cherries.

Add cherries, sugar and orange juice in a medium sauce pan and cook over medium heat until cherries are soft.


Remove cherries with a slotted spoon and cook the liquid for 2 - 3 more minutes until reduced and thickened. Add in vanilla.


Add cherries back into the pot and stir to combine.


Let cool and stir in the almond extract (optional)


Brie Instructions

Preheat oven to 400F. Prepare your baking dish appropriately. I use a cast iron skillet but you can use a baking sheet.


Place brie on a cutting board and slice off rind. Popping the Brie in the freezer will make it easier to cut. This is optional! The rind is edible. You can also leave just the bottom as well!


Place brie in the center of prepared baking dish.


Spoon cherry mixture over the center of the brie.


Bake for 10 minutes, or until cheese has melted.


Serve immediately with your favorite bread, crackers, etc. Brie is best served while hot!
