Baked brie is one of the simplest appetizers around. Over the weekend we had some friends over and I made this raspberry chipotle version to enjoy poolside while watching golf. I know it sounds super fancy and all but it really was not. Here’s proof
Bucket of sunscreen, dogs under foot, “fancy” appetizer on the table….yep. That’s my summer alright!
I had this bottle of Fischer & Wieser raspberry chipotle sauce left over from my giveaway a few weeks ago. I thought, “Dang. That would be great on cheese” and this raspberry chipotle baked brie was born.
As I mentioned, baked brie is insanely easy to make. Cut cheese in half, pour jam or sauce or fruit on top, wrap in store bought puff pastry, bake. Yes, its that simple.
Ok, it may not be the most “summery” of appetizers, but my crowd loved it. I served mine with some crunchy multigrain crackers, but it would also be good with a baguette or even pretzels!

Summer is in full swing right now which means a weekly pool party for us (I guess we had better inflate all the pool floats finally). I’ve been loving the long days and the ability to take photos at 7pm. I’m looking forward to more FITS (Fun in the sun) more poolside appetizers, and more time spent with our fabulous friends. What are some of your favorite summertime activities?
