Cranberry-Raspberry Balsamic Compote and Brie Crostini

Cranberry-Raspberry Balsamic Compote and Brie Crostini

This cranberry-raspberry balsamic compote and brie crostini was a HUGE hit with my entire family. The combination of tart cranberries with sweet raspberries and tangy balsamic vinegar topping some creamy brie cheese on crisp crostini is perfect. We all thought these appetizers were delicious and I am looking forward to serving them for Thanksgiving this year. I love that they are easy to make ahead of time and really quick to throw together right before serving.

How to Make Cranberry-Raspberry Balsamic Compote and Brie Crostini

Make the cranberry-raspberry balsamic compote by combining the fresh cranberries and raspberries with sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries pop, about 10-15 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-10 minutes, or until thickened. Set aside to cool.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Make the crostini by brushing the baguette slices with a bit of olive oil and place them on a baking tray. Bake for 5-7 minutes, or until lightly toasted.

To assemble, place a slice of brie on a crostini them top with a dollop of the cranberry-raspberry balsamic compote. Serve immediately with extra compote on the side.

  1. Such an impressive name, I had to check this out and it does look delicious.

    Could you heat the brie on the bread, just a little, to make it softer?

    1. Susan,

      You can but it could get messy. I added the slices of brie to the warm crostini and it warmed it up nicely.
