Time: 25 minutes

Serves: 6


  • 1/3 cup The Good Grocer Collection honey
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Pinch of flakey sea salt
  • 250g brie wheel
  • 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil, plus more for rubbing
  • 1 cup pitted cherries
  • 1-2 tablespoons bourbon (optional)
  • Toasted or grilled bread, for serving
  1. Add the honey, thyme, and salt to a small saucepan and simmer over medium heat until it begins to boil. Remove from the heat let the honey sit 5 minutes or until ready to serve. You can make the honey up to a week in advance.
  2. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Rub the brie with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Place in the oven for 10 – 15 minutes or until the brie feels warm and gooey inside. Be careful when touching the brie, you do not want to break the brie open.
  3. Meanwhile, add the butter, cherries, and bourbon (if using), to a small pan set over medium high heat. Cook stirring occasionally until the cherries begin to release their juices, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  4. To serve, place the warm brie on a serving plate. Top with cherries and drizzle generously with honey. Enjoy with toasted bread or crackers!
