How to Make Baked Brie with Cranberry Balsamic Compote

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet and put them into the oven to bake for 5-7 minutes, or until slightly crisp. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Coat a small cast iron skillet with olive oil cooking spray. Place the brie round in a small cast iron skillet then put it into the oven. Cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until the brie is softened & getting gooey. Remove from the oven.

Make the cranberry balsamic compote while the cheese is baking. Place the cranberries, water, and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries pop, about 10 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until thickened.

Spoon some of the cranberry balsamic compote on top and serve with the warm crostini. Enjoy!
