maple cream and apple baked brie
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a baking dish or pie plate with nonstick spray. I suggest using the dish you’d like to serve this in so you don’t have to transfer it.
Spread the apple butter on top of the brie cheese. Gently spread the maple cream on next. Layer on the apple slices and sprinkle them with cinnamon, then drizzle with maple syrup.
Bake the brie for 10 to 15 minutes, just until it almost bursts and the cheese is melty. Drizzle more maple cream or syrup on top right before serving. Serve with lots of crackers, crostini and breadsticks!
I like to place my cheese on the board first and then add in bowls with spreads or nuts. After that, fill in your empty spaces with what else you have! It will all come together as you work at it.
