Baked Brie with Red Wine Soaked Blackberries

Wine Soaked Blackberries

This may be this easiest recipe we will ever share! Baked brie with red wine soaked blackberries is equal parts easy and impressive. Brie is a soft, pleasant cheese that pairs extremely well with fruit. Add a little wine and the pairing is superb!

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. soft ripened Brie round
  • 1 cup of your favorite red wine (I used Merlot, but any red wine would work!)
  • 2 cups fresh blackberries

Directions

  • Place blackberries in large bowl and pour Merlot over blackberries, soak for 30 minutes
  • Place brie on sheet pan and loosely cover with foil or parchment paper
  • Bake brie for 5-7 minutes at 350 degrees until it starts to ooze
  • Place brie on serving dish and spoon over blackberries
  • Serve with crackers, toast or bread of choice!

Note: I cut off the rind on the top and it gave it a bit of a toasted effect. Leaving the rind on allows the brie to hold in moisture. I’ve tried it both ways and enjoy either option. For this recipe, I believe that leaving the rind on would allow the brie to spread most easily.
