Baked Brie

A wheel of Brie (or just a big slice of Brie if you’re cooking for a few people or broke (see pic). (You know a wheel of brie can be expensive).
2 spoonfuls of Triple Sec Liquor
Dried cranberries
Dried apricots (chopped up)
Candied Pecans (chopped up)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Poke holes in cheese with fork 10 times. Pour a spoonful of triple sec over cheese and let seep into holes. In small bowl mix dried cranberries, candied pecans, dried apricots with another spoonful of triple sec in bowl (tsp of maple syrup optional, but I only recommend this if you are going to finish the cheese all at once. Same goes for substituting raspberries for the dried cranberries. The compote won’t stay fresh overtime if you use syrup or raspberries, but it will taste good). Pour compote over brie and bake in oven on a stick free cookie sheet or glass pan for about 10-15 min.

Save leftovers– you can reheat this in a microwave or toaster oven. This is a perfect appetizer to serve with bread or crackers. Your friends will be impressed cause it looks and tastes kinda like a big deal.
