Cranberry Baked Brie

I love making cranberry sauce every year, but I do tend to have leftovers.  Many people pass right over the cranberry sauce on the buffet, but I've found (and now proved!) that there is one sure fire way to get people to try something: put it on a cheese plate!  I knew i'd have plenty of cranberry sauce leftover, so I put together this simple appetizer and it was a BIG hit.  Mike even had me make it again the next night!

Cranberry baked brie is not only an elegant appetizer, but also a crowd pleaser.  To assemble, preheat the oven to 375.  Scrape some of the rind off of the top of the brie (be sure to leave the rest of the rind in tact, otherwise the cheese will melt all over your oven!), and top with a quarter cup or so of orange cranberry sauce.  Bake for 20 minutes, or until bubbly.  Serve with sliced granny smith apples and crackers.
