Sparkling Cranberry Brie Bites Recipe
Relish in the combination of savory and sweet with this beautiful appetizer that layers cranberries, brie and cranberry chutney on crackers.
Yield: 2 dozen
- 2 cups fresh cranberries
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 package water crackers
- 8 ounces brie
- 1 jar cranberry chutney
Top a water cracker with store-bought cranberry chutney. (Other flavors work here, too.) Add a slice of brie cheese, another dollop of cranberry chutney, then top with a sugared cranberry.*
*To make sugared cranberries, warm maple syrup, then pour over fresh cranberries. Cover and let soak in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, drain the syrup off the cranberries and roll them around in sugar. Allow to dry for one hour on a plate or baking sheet.
