I received 3 containers of dried fruit from my grandma for Christmas. It isn't my favorite snack on its own, but I turned it into a delicious appetizer. This is fantastic served with a baguette.
Baked Brie with Fruit Compote
Serves about 10--though I could eat the whole thing!
1 cup variety of dried fruit (apricots, pears, apples, etc.)
2 tablespoons strawberry jelly (or any variety)
1/2 cup warm water
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 large wedge of brie
1. For fruit compote, dice fruit and combine in sauce pan with jelly, cornstarch, and water. Heat over low heat about 20 minutes.
2. Bake brie at 350 degrees about 20-30 minutes, until gooey.
3. Top brie with fruit compote. Serve with baguette slices or crackers.
|I had enough dried fruit from my grandma to make this several times. One time, the brie completely melted in the oven. I just topped it with fruit and served it out of the pan. Still a success!|
