Dried Fruit and Nut Baked Brie

Dried fruit and nut baked brie is an easy appetizer that will definitely please your party crowd. And it’s so pretty it can be at the center of the table.

It’s almost New Year’s and that means more holiday get togethers. I don’t know about you, but I’m about food and partied out. But it’s time to rally and get ready for New Year’s Eve!

I’ve got an easy appetizer recipe that’s sure to be a big hit at your gathering. This Dried fruit and nut brie is beautiful in its presentation and tastes even better than it looks.

I used a combination of dried figs, cranberries, walnuts and pecans for mine, but you could use almost any combination of dried fruits and nuts for this. The sweet and sticky piece, that holds everything together, is apricot jelly. When this goes in the oven, the jelly gets a little melty and coats everything but doesn’t get all runny like some recipes. I really like using it because it keeps the fruit, nuts and cheese as the centerpiece of this appetizer.

If you’ve got a small cast iron skillet or baking pan, you can just pile everything into that, pop it in the oven, and serve it all in the same pan. If you only have larger baking pans it’s easy enough to lift off the baked brie and place it onto a serving a plate. Remember, all of the fruit and nuts piled on top are super sticky now, so they shouldn’t be falling all over the place. But when you serve it it looks kind of nice if you pull a few pieces off and have them laying around the cheese.

By baking the cheese for only 5-7 minutes, you shouldn’t have it oozing all over. That will happen when you cut into it.

Enjoy your holiday and serve up a terrific appetizer with this fruit and nut baked brie.
