Its sweetness comes from the generous dollop of cranberry sauce that gets mixed into the freshly baked cheese. Of course, the savory factor comes from the brie itself, as well as the addition of fresh rosemary.

What Is Baked Brie?

Baked brie is an entire wheel of brie cheese that’s been melted in the oven, and topped with flavorful garnishes and sauces. It acts like a “cheese dip” and is most commonly served with bread and crackers.

Do I Need to Take Off the Rind To Make Baked Brie?

For this particular recipe, I recommend cutting off only the top of the brie. Keeping the rest of the rind will help the cheese keep its shape. It also helps to contain the melted portion of the cheese.
