Brie with Cranberries and Walnuts
This is one of my favorite appetizer recipes and everyone loves it. If you make the cranberry topping in the morning then all you have to do is heat the cheese for about 10 minutes before serving. Then you add the cranberry orange topping, top with toasted walnuts and just like that you’re done. I love it served with apples or pears and also crackers. This is a great appetizer to have on hand if company drops by or you need something to take to a party.
