8 ounce round brie cheese
12 ounce bag of cranberries
½ cup organic panela
2 cinnamon sticks
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
1 tablespoon orange zest
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons candied ginger
¼ cup almonds

Preheat oven to 425° 🔥

Bring cranberries, panela, cinnamon stick, nutmeg, cloves, and ¾ cup water to a simmer in a medium saucepan. Cover and simmer for 7 to 9 minutes, or until the cranberries are just beginning to burst and the sauce is beginning to thicken.

Add orange zest, chopped candied ginger and vanilla extract. Simmer uncovered for 1 to 2 minutes. Take out the cinnamon stick, then transfer sauce to a bowl to let it cool completely.

Once cooled, top brie with cranberry sauce and sprinkle chopped almonds on top.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese is gooey. Don’t bake for too long, it’ll be a mess.

Garnish with rosemary, serve with crackers and wine. 🍷
