Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
  • 2 tBsp + 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup finely diced red onion (about half onion)

  • 1 tBsp dark rum
  • 1/2 cup water

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Heat 2 tbsp butter in large skillet.
  2. Sautee onion and raisins in butter for 4 minutes.

  11. Preheat the oven to 350F, with the rack in the centre of the oven. Cut the top off the brie (using a serrated knife and cold cheese helps).

  1. I’m making this on the weekend for a wine party – it looks delicious. One little thing – in the list of ingredients, the BRIE isn’t listed!

  2. I made this for a dinner party tonight, it was fantastic! I only used 1 tsp vanilla and 1/4 c. onion, which was plenty.

  3. Looks awesome, I just did a similiar recipe in phyllo cups, but I like the addition of the brown sugar in yours. Trying your version.
