- Place the wheel back in its’ wooden box and place on a baking sheet, then top with the cranberries.

- Take wooden box off baking sheet and place onto a serving plate with fruit and crackers.
Notes & Options:
There are lots of ways to modify this baked Camembert cranberry dish to spice it up, down or just change it to suit your palate. You can try:
– Add some nuts or a sprinkle of sugar on top before baking.
– Use a homemade cranberry sauce or chutney in place of fresh cranberries. The fresh cranberries will melt and soften in the oven on their own but sauces will be softer and have more flavor.
– Add in orange zest to make the cheese more festive.
Make it Healthy – Replace the optional sugar sprinkle with granulated sweetener. Replacing this one ingredient (sugar) will turn this recipe into a healthy, holiday appetizer instead of a sweet treat.
