Cranberry Rum Brie

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by TigerJo

I prefer this recipe with lingonberries as opposed to cranberries now, but it's good either way. My husband's Aunt makes this every Thanksgiving.

I served this at a little Happy Hour I hosted and it was gone in minutes. We loved the combination of the brown sugar, rum and cranberry mixture over the brie cheese. This is a winner and I cant' wait to make it again. Thanks so much for sharing, TigerJo.
