Yay for sweater weather, fuzzy boots, pumpkin everything, cinnamon spiced goodies, and football!!!!
Totally kidding about fooseball, y’all. Definitely not a fan.
That’s exactly what I did when I tested this recipe for baked brie topped with vanilla and cardamom spiced apples and served with gluten-free cinnamon crackers. I made it, photographed it, put it on the table in front of my family and, after a few “Oh, wows” and “Mmmm, mmmm, mmmms” I knew I had a winner.
Taste testing this baked brie almost went down like my spring roll recipe.
We continually crammed crackers into our mouths until there was nothing but a few slices of brie skin and a dusting of cracker crumbles left on the tray. If there is one thing in life I’m certain about it’s that my brother-in-law will give me an unbiased opinion on whether or not my recipes need work. He could not stop swooning over this and just kept saying how much his wife would love it.
I guess I know what I’ll be making for the family Christmas party this year!
Baked brie is always a must when at a holiday party and, though there are a lot of steps for this recipe, it really is easy to make!
Pull together the vanilla and cardamom spiced apples first and pop them into the oven. Then make your cinnamon cracker dough. As soon as the crackers are cut, pop them onto a baking sheet. Then unwrap your brie and place it in a small oven safe baking dish and put it next to the apples on the top rack of the oven. Lastly, place the baking sheet of crackers on the middle rack and wait as the intoxicating scents of cinnamon and cardamom fill your entire house.
Gah! I love the smell of fall! I adore having my home smell like the seasons. During the spring I’ll burn floral candles, the summer I’ll burn something beachy or peachy, and the fall is full of pumpkin and cinnamon. Come Christmastime the smells of spruce and and yule logs are all up in her. Loves it.
Baked brie is always a crowd pleaser and, when you make this, I’d be shocked if you have any leftovers. Also, you can feel good about eating this bubbling cheese! There is ZERO refined sugar and the crackers are both gluten-free and grain-free and are full of protein. So you’ve got your fruit, dairy, protein and healthy fats thrown together in one dish.
