Ingredients
  • Compote:
  • 1 pound fresh Bing cherries, pitted and halved
  • 1/2 cup good-quality Port wine
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Baguette:
  • 1 crusty French baguette
  • 3 ounces Brie, sliced into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
Directions
  • For the compote: In a small saucepan on medium-high heat, add the cherries, wine, salt, pepper and thyme and stir. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat slightly to medium. Continue to cook at a rapid simmer until the liquid is reduced by half, 25 to 30 minutes. Turn off the heat and let cool, then remove the thyme sprigs.

  • For the baguette: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Using a paring knife, cut a deep "v" on the top of the baguette. Pull out some of the soft bread to create a deep crevice. Place the Brie slices into the crevice, overlapping each slice. Transfer to a baking sheet.

  • Bake until the cheese is melted and the bread is slightly toasted, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board. Spoon the cherry compote over the melted Brie. Slice into thick slices, garnish with the remaining thyme sprig and serve.
