This is a great appetizer for any group of people, I always took it to my department’s Holiday Open House. I haven’t run into anyone who doesn’t LOVE it. It is so easy, and it looks so great – and tastes even better. Serve with crackers or toast rounds, I didn’t want to open the package of crackers just for a picture the day before Thanksgiving.
You can use anything you want (or have on hand) for this. This time I used – Scotch, pecans, dried cranberries. I’ve used raisins, all kinds of different nuts, and even orange juice for my tee-totaling friends.
13.5 oz Baby Brie round (or equivalent wedge) refrigerated
1 8 oz cream cheese at room temperature
1/4 cup liquid – alcoholic or otherwise
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup dried fruit
Cut brie in half horizontally. Mix cream cheese and liquid together until smooth, add nuts and fruit. Spread on bottom half of the brie and add top. Serve with crackers and be prepared to give everyone the recipe.
