“Just six ingredients are all I need to create an elegant appetizer perfect for entertaining. The tart cranberry compote pairs well with creamy Brie cheese.”
—Katherine W., Omaha, Nebraska


  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup jellied cranberry sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) French bread, cut into 1/2-in. slices
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 pound Brie cheese, thinly sliced


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the cranberries, vinegar, cranberry sauce and sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened, about 12 minutes.

  2. Brush bottoms of bread with butter; place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 1-2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Top bread with Brie. Bake for 4-6 minutes or until cheese is melted. Spoon cranberry mixture over cheese, about 1 tablespoon on each. Yield: about 2 dozen.
