Savoury Cranberry Pomegranate Brie Bake

Guests stopped in today and I decided I wanted to make something new for an appetizer. I found this lovely Brie bake on a site called “www.dashofsavory.com”. It’s easy, it’s yummy, and it’s savoury. It is delightful!

Here we go!

Ingredients:
-1 {13 ounce} Brie Wheel
-1 sheet Frozen Puff Pastry, thawed
-Pomegranate and Rosemary Cranberry Sauce
-1 whole Egg
-1 tablespoon Water
-Crackers, baguette etc.

Method
1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Unfold the puff pastry sheet on a floured surface. Roll out slightly. Place the brie wheel in the center and spread the cranberry sauce on top in an even layer. Fold the puff pastry around the brie, crimping the top together and sealing the edges. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

3. Whisk together the egg and the water. Brush the egg wash on the puff pastry covered brie.

4. Place in the oven to bake for 20 – 25 minutes until golden brown. Remove and let stand for 15 minutes before serving. Serve with crackers or baguette.

Now to make the sauce!

Ingredients:
-1 pound Fresh Cranberries, washed and dried
-1 – 1/2 cups Sugar
-1 {8 ounce} bottle Pomegranate Juice
-1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
-1/2 teaspoon Ground Allspice
-1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
-1 finely chopped jalapeño
-1 teaspoon Fresh Rosemary Leaves, roughly chopped {about 3 sprigs}
-1 Orange, zested and juiced

Method:
1. In a medium size heavy bottom pot add the washed cranberries, sugar, pomegranate juice, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Bring mixture to a simmer while stirring until cranberries begin to burst, about 10 minutes.

2. Add the rosemary, jalapeño, orange zest and juice. Continue stirring and simmer for an additional 5 to 7 minutes.

3. Allow to cool and serve.

NOTE:
There was a mix up and I had to get rid of the dough today and then dinner was rescheduled but it was too late – DIDN’T MATTER!!!! This was fantastic without the pastry dough – popped in the oven for 10 minutes at 400 and it was amazing!

Here’s final product!!! Reviews to follow 😉 look how it oozed out when cut into!!!
