for the love of brie.

I spotted some Pumpkin Caramel Sauce in Trader Joe’s recently and stared at it like I thought a recipe would just pop off the shelf.

It didn’t.

Alas, a day or two later, I spotted a recipe elsewhere for caramel brie. Thanksgiving appetizer? Methinks, yes. I returned to Trader Joe’s to grab both the brie and pumpkin caramel. To prepare, I just scraped the rind off of the top of the brie before drizzling the caramel sauce over it. I then warmed it in the oven at 350 degees until I thought the brie was about to “break,” as I like to call it.

Brie is one of those things I love to experiment with because, truly, have you ever had a bad brie?

Last night, I made one of my favorite brie recipes using Jalapeno Cranberry Sauce from Trader Joe’s, since it was more festive for a Christmas party with the girls.

For this recipe, I use a tube of crescent rolls, unrolled. ( I know, you’d think I could make it look prettier but I’m taking baby steps in the kitchen, y’all.) After I scraped the rind off the brie, I poured the cranberry sauce on top and covered it with the crescent roll. Then, I cooked it for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees. It’s my favorite when it melts right on out. Plus, don’t you love my cute pie dish from Anthropologie?

Yes, that’s a chocolate martini too. It was delicious! I wish we could have a Christmas party ever month.

We also did a White Elephant gift exchange – my favorite! I got the Humans of New York book I’ve been coveting and the cutest mason jar measuring cups!

What a blast we had playing Cards Against Humanity and hanging out together. These girls are the best and I am so thankful for them!
