Notes

Pomegranate molasses can be found in most grocery stores and many international specialty stores. It's also very simple to make with pomegranate juice, sugar and lemon.

Ingredients

  • 8 Ounces brie
  • 6 Ounces fresh cranberries
  • 1/4 Cup light brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons pomegranate molasses
  • 1/4 Teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1/2 Cup pomegranate arils

Directions

Preheat oven to 350º F.

In a small sauce pan, add all ingredients except pomegranate arils and brie.

Bring to a gentle boil then turn down to low.

Stir frequently and cook for about 4-6 minutes.

Remove from heat and add pomegranate arils.

Stir.

Scrape or carefully slice the top rind off of the brie.

Bake brie for about 10-15 minutes.

Remove from oven and top the brie with the sauce.

Return to oven for 3-5 minutes just to warm topping.

Serve immediately with crackers, apples, pears or crostini.
