Acclaimed as one of the world's great cheeses, Brie is characterized by an edible, downy white rind and a cream-colored, buttery-soft interior that should "ooze" when at the peak of ripeness. Though several countries (including the United States) make this popular cheese, Brie from France is considered the best and French Brie de Meaux dates back to the 8th century.

So what happens when you take something that is already delicious and add some sweetness. Well, I'm referring to my aunt Barbara's favorite appetizer which simply takes Brie cheese and adds a layer of sweet dried cranberries. Next, pop this combination into an oven-safe dish at 375 for 15-20 minutes. This step is a must to bring out all the aromas and flavors. It's "Brielicous." Serve warm with a tray of crackers and/or pita chips.
