Creamy Brie with Apple Guava Honey and Drunken Cranberries

Creamy Brie with Apple Guava Honey and Drunken Cranberries

Recipe by: Gabrielle

SERVES: 6-8

Wine Pairing: 2015 Gabrielle Collection Equilateral Cabernet Sauvignon, Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley

PREP TIME: 10 minutes COOK TIME: 10 minutes TOTAL TIME: 20 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup 2015 Gabrielle Collection Equilateral Cabernet Sauvignon, Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley
  • 1 wheel 8 oz. Brie, suggest triple cream
  • 1 sheet parchment paper
  • ¼ cup GC Napa Valley Natural Apple Guava Infused Honey
  • ¾ cup sliced almonds, toasted

TO PREPARE

  1. Make drunken cranberries: Heat Equilateral wine and cranberries in a small pan over medium heat. Simmer 10 minutes or until cranberries are soft. Drain cranberries, reserving liquid. Place cranberries on a paper towel to further drain. As for the Equilateral wine-cranberry liquid, it makes a nice aperitif for the cook.
  2. Unwrap Brie. If you are not a fan of the crust, you may scrape it lightly. Place Brie on a piece of parchment paper
  3. Warm the Apple Guava Honey in microwave for a few seconds, just until it reaches a spreadable consistency (not too thin). Put honey on top Brie. Brush tops and sides to evenly coat.
  4. Mound sliced almonds next to Brie. Using your hand and parchment paper press almonds around and up the sides of the Brie.
  5. Top Brie with drunken cranberries.

TO SERVE

Place decorated Brie wheel on a charcuterie board or plate surrounded with your choice of crackers, crostini, baguette, sliced apples, or sliced pears. Serve at room temperature.
