Honey Thyme Sweet Cherry Baked Brie

Honey Thyme Sweet Cherry Baked Brie

I’ve been craving baked brie lately so I finally decided to make some recently. We normally top our baked brie with a spicy fruit jam but wanted to try something different this time. I found a wonderful recipe at Half Baked Harvest that looked irresistible. I baked the brie in my cast iron skillet instead of grilling it on the grill. The recipe takes a little more time to make but is worth the extra effort. The combination of flavors and textures in this honey thyme sweet cherry baked brie is wonderful. I really loved the creamy brie with the sweet/tart cherries drizzled with thyme-infused honey – so delicious! The whole family thought this appetizer was delicious – especially my son!

How to Make Honey Thyme Sweet Cherry Baked Brie

Add the honey, fresh thyme, and sea salt to a small saucepan over low heat and cook until it boils. Remove from the heat and let the honey sit for 5 minutes or until ready to serve. Side Note: If you make the honey in advance, reheat it a bit right before serving so it drizzles well.

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.

While the brie is baking, prepare the cherries by placing the halved & pitted cherries and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cherries begin to release their juices, about 5-7 minutes.

To serve, spoon the cherries on top of the warm baked brie then drizzle with some of the infused honey, to taste. Serve immediately with the warm crostini and extra honey on the side. Enjoy!
