Appetizer: Dried Fruit and Caramel Brie


1 (6-inch) wheel brie cheese
¼ c sliced almonds or candied pecans
1 c dried fruit mix (pre-purchased mix or create your own blend of cranberries, blueberries, cherries, mango, pineapple, candied ginger)
2 T butter
½ c brown sugar
¼ c Orange Liqueur (Grand Marnier or Cointreau) - Optional


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Melt brown sugar in butter - mix well.
3. Add in orange liqueur, dried fruit mix and almonds and stir.
4. Pour over Brie in oven-proof pan and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.
5. Let sit for 5-10 minutes and then transfer to a serving dish. Cut a small wedge of the brie to let some cheese ooze out to prompt your guests to indulge in this decadent dish. Serve with water crackers or sliced baguette.
