A quick & easy treat for your guests! The sauce can be made ahead, covered & refrigerated for up to 3 days. If raspberries aren't available (or too expensive), substitute with cranberries & cranberry cocktail.
- Set aside 1/4 cup of the raspberries on a paper towel.
- Place the rest into a small saucepan, along with the rest of the sauce ingredients and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
- Transfer to a sieve and press through into a bowl.
- Place Brie on parchment paper lined (or greased) baking sheet and bake in preheated 350F oven until softened, about 10 minutes.
- Pool half the sauce onto a serving plate, top with the brie and drizzle with remaining sauce.
- Sprinkle with remaining raspberries and cut into wedges.
This was a fabulous addition to our dinner party appetizers! ** A great tip: Before baking the brie, cut the round into half so you have two rounds of brie. Using a square piece of dough from Pilsbury Croissant Dough, place a round on a large square of dough. Fold the dough up and around the brie and gather the ends at the top. Pinch to seal. Bake in a 350 degree oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Serve as you would above with the reduction. Let sit for a couple of minutes prior to cutting into wedges. Voila! A beautiful and classy appetizer.
i had canned chipotles in adobo and powdered chipotle pepper. i opted for the dry and found it added heat but little flavor so i added about 8 drops of liquid smoke and a few dashes of salt. i also used a dry red wine as i had no port but i could also only get a frozen fruitopia for the raspberry concentrate so it added a bit of sweetness and worked out ok. served with triscuits, very addictive!
Truly awesome. I've never seen the beauty of brie until now. This recipe made a convert of me. The sauce is amazing and I think it can be used with anything that needs a sweet and savory touch - chicken, fish, pork, grilled veggies, anything. I used two small chipotles and it was just enough for us but too hot for some of our guests. Oh, well, more brie for me!
