Baked Brie with Balsamic Cherries, Pistachios & Cinnamon Balsamic

2 Tbsp. Cinnamon Pear Balsamic or your favourite!
2 Tbsp. hot water
1/2 c. dried cherries (or could use dried cranberries)
1/3 c. pistachios, chopped (or your favourite nuts)
200 g. brie cheese wheel
2 Tbsp. honey

Preheat oven to 350F. In a small bowl, add Cinnamon Pear Balsamic and hot water to dried cherries. Set aside and allow to soak for 15 minutes.

While cherries are soaking, warm honey slightly in microwave or sauce pan (to make it thin for drizzling). 

Using a brie baker or a baking sheet lined with parchment, place unwrapped brie. Using a fork or a vegetable peeler, lightly score or peel top rind of brie (leave sides and bottom in tact). 

Drain balsamic-soaked cherries, then place on top of brie. Sprinkle the pistachios and drizzle the warmed honey. Bake for 15 minutes or until brie has just started to ooze.

Transfer brie to a serving platter if desired, and drizzle with extra Cinnamon Pear Balsamic. Serve warm with crackers, crostini or baguette slices.

Chef's Note: Try with your favourite flavoured Balsamics! We would recommend Blackberry Ginger, or Cherry Balsamic.
