So Very Berry Brie

I needed to make something quick for a wine and cheese party, and had a bounty of berries on hand. My creation went great with all the wines and looked so much more impressive than the other plain cheeses! —Kristin Larson-Jantzi, Newton, Kansas

    Sounds delicious but what size cast iron or ovenproof skillet is used. Thank you.

    Wow! Just made this and it is delicious. I doubled the fresh berries, added 1 tsp vanilla at the end and let it cool before slathering it on the double cream brie. It was fantastic! Thanks for sharing.

    If you like berries on crackers, this is the recipe for you. I doubled the Brie, but still had berry soup. Will not be making this again.

    I love brie and to those of you who asked about the rind, eat it! It has a mild salty taste which is perfect with the creamy part!

    It looked fabulous and tasted delicious. I used fresh fruit instead of frozen and it made the dish seem much fresher!

    I think this recipe is great especially using a pastry shell around it.

    I used the frozen berry blend available at Costco and used Spenda granular in place of sugar...Very good!

    I'm also giving it four stars to without trying, just to answer the question about rind. You can definitely eat the rind on Brie. It is very soft and completely edible Some people prefer not to eat it, and can just eat around it. This recipe sounds good and I will try it!

    I am giving this 4 stars even though I have not tried it yet, because I don't want to skew the results. I also wonder about the rind on the brie and what kind of crackers are pictured? I love brie and I love berries so I am anxious to make this.
