Warm Brie with Cranberries and WalnutsDip into the luscious melted cheese with trans fat–free 100 percent whole-grain or wheat crackers. Outstanding.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: about 1 ounce cheese mixture and 5 crackers)


    1 (8-ounce) round Brie cheese
    2 tablespoons dried cranberries
    1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
    1 teaspoon chopped walnuts, toasted
    40 low-sodium 100 percent whole-wheat crackers (such as Triscuit)


    1. Preheat oven to 350°.
    2. Using a serrated knife, remove topmost rind from cheese; discard rind. Place cheese, cut side up, in a small ovenproof baking dish; sprinkle with cranberries and thyme. Top evenly with nuts. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until cheese is soft and warm. Serve immediately with crackers.
