If you're anything like us our dance card has been a bit full with
Christmas parties, staff parties, dessert parties, church parties and neighborly socials.
I love this time of year, and I love to socialize.
But as with anything, time to spare is at a premium.
I found this wonderful recipe for
Sparkling Cranberry Brie Bites
Yummy Mummy by way of Pinterest.
Don't they look scrumptuous?
Very simple to make
makes about 16
2 cups fresh cranberries
1 cup good maple syrup
1 cup granulated sugar
Rinse cranberries and place in a medium bowl. Heat syrup in a small sauce pan just until warm. Pour over cranberries when syrup is warm, not hot, or cranberries may pop. Cool, cover, and let soak in the refrigerator overnight.
Drain cranberries in a colander. Place sugar in a large bowl or baking dish. Add cranberries in 2 batches and roll around until lightly coated in sugar. Place on a baking sheet until dry, about 1 hour.
8 oz Brie cheese
cranberry chutney or cranberry relish
fresh mint for garnish
Assemble crackers with one slice of brie, a light layer of cranberry chutney, and 4 or 5 sugared cranberries. Garnish with fresh mint sprigs.
