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.
- 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
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.
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.
