This Baked Brie with Dried Cherries is one of those recipes that looks like you spent hours in the kitchen preparing when you really didn’t. It’s always a huge hit because everyone loves baked brie. I was a little bit intimidated the first time I made it because I thought it would be much more complicated. Honestly, it’s the easiest thing ever and it tastes SO GOOD.

This recipe is very versatile. You can change up the dried fruit and nuts you choose to use. You can add herbs like rosemary or chives if you want a more savory taste or add a bit more honey for a sweeter taste. We like to serve ours with crackers but you can use freshly baked bread if you like as well. You’ll want to be sure that it has a crispy crust so that it really holds up when you scoop up the brie.
