Cranberry Inspired Cheese Dish


Small Brie Wheel

Dried Cranberries – such as craisins

Orange Liqueur

Splash of Tequila

Phyllo Sheets


Place the dried cranberries in a small saute pan, add 2 oz of orange liqueur and a splash of tequila, and sauté over medium high heat until most all of the liquid has been absorbed by the cranberries.

Follow the directions on the phyllo sheet package for unfolding the phyllo. Place one sheet in the middle of a baking pan. Place the brie in the center of the sheet and put the cranberries on top of the Brie. 

Wrap the phyllo around the brie and brush the top with an egg wash (egg white and water).

Bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes or until phyllo is golden brown.

Cut and serve with Crostini or crackers.
