Cranberry Rum Brie


  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon rum extract
  • 1/2 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 (8 ounce) round Brie cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • Assorted crackers or ginger snaps


  1. In small bowl, combine brown sugar, rum extract, cranberry sauce and nutmeg. Stir to blend.
  2. Scrape or cut off the top rind of the cheese, leaving 1/4-inch edge by scoring or making a circle on the top 1/4-inch from the edge with a small knife. Using a teaspoon, simply scrape off the top of the rind, exposing the cheese. Top Brie with cranberry mixture and sprinkle with pecans.
  3. Bake at 500 degrees F for 5 minutes, or until cheese is softened.
  4. Using a large spatula, place Brie round on serving plate and surround with assorted crackers.
