This spiced Cranberry & Walnut Baked Brie makes a perfect festive holiday party appetizer. It's simple: A quick cranberry relish gets placed on top of a creamy wheel of brie before being baked until it’s gooey inside.

You can serve this with any keto style cracker or even bacon chips. My vote is for bacon chips! If you’re making this for a party, you can skip the baking part until you reach your destination. That way it’ll be perfect hot when served!

Really tasty! I made just a 1-serving size. Good thing, because I would have eaten way more if I made the whole batch. I ate it with half a low carb tortilla, warmed up in the oven with the brie. I think I might use this for a dish to pass at potlucks.
