This festive cheese torte makes a beautiful centrepiece for your Christmas table.
|Preparation Time:||15 minutes|
|Cooking time:||10 minutes|
- 1.2kg wheel double brie
- 1/3 cup brandy
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 6 cloves
- 350g assorted glacé and/or dried fruit
- 50g walnut halves
Remove the brie from the refrigerator one hour before serving to come to room temperature.
Combine the brandy, honey, cinnamon stick and cloves in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes and refrigerate until cooled and syrupy.
Just prior to serving, place the Furneaux on a serving platter and decoratively arrange the glacé fruit and walnuts on top. Drizzle with syrup, garnishing with cinnamon stick and cloves. Serve with crispbreads or thinly sliced baguette.
Any combination of glacé and/or dried fruit can be used.
My version has glacé pineapple, glacé apricots, glacé figs, glacé pears, glacé orange slices, dried pears, dried apricots and maraschino cherries.
