All the snacks and goodies are coming out for the month of December….all the parties, Open Houses, etc and now is the time to present something a little different yet very elegant.
- 1 – 6 oz. round of Camembert
- 1/2 cup of Cranberry Chutney or any fruit chutney
- 1/4 cup toasted pecans, chopped
- fresh cranberries, figs (if you can get them) dates and kumquats
- Water Crackers
Slice the Camembert in half horizontally and separate. Spread the chutney on the bottom half and sprinkle with the toasted pecans.
Cover with the top half of the cheese. Prior to microwaving, garnish a platter with the fresh berries/fruitsbeing sure to leave room for the cheese.
Place the cheese on a microwave-safe dish and on medium power, microwave for 1-2 minutes until the cheese starts to become runny. Remove and place on the garnished tray. Serve with water crackers and a chilled glass of your best white wine.
I can hear all the oohs and ahhs from here.
