Holidays are just around the corner and I’ve been busy planning and getting ready for Christmas and NYE. At least I’m done with my holiday shopping, which is nice. This Baked Brie With Cranberries And Almonds is perfect for the holidays.

During the holidays, there are exciting times of family get togethers, parties and potlucks. It can be a little overwhelming at times. Cleaning, cooking and getting ready? Who has a lot of time to spend in the kitchen? Not me!

If you are planning a NYE party, I think I have the perfect recipe for you. It takes around 20 minutes to make and it looks festive. Delicious and perfect for a crowd.


If you decide to make the cranberry sauce in advance, you’ll be able to save 10 minutes! I used my go-to recipe, but did not add any water, because I wanted the sauce to be less watery and cranberries to stay whole.

I was recently given the opportunity to try these Blue Diamond Honey Almonds. They are crunchy, perfectly sweet and make a great snack on their own. These almonds will also make a nice stocking stuffer.

I decided to incorporate them into my baked brie recipe, I used them as a topping. They added the perfect crunch to finish my party appetizer.


I’ve made baked brie before, it is extremely easy and quick to prepare. I really wanted to try the puff pastry wrapped baked brie and I did, but I guess I just prefer to leave the puff pastry out.

Hope I inspire you to make this appetizer for your holiday party!
