Cajeta Sauce with Anise (Mexican Caramel Sauce)

Fruit and Nut Brie

  • 2 tablespoons Cajeta Sauce with Anise
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried dates
  • 1 round (8 ounces) Brie cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds

Instructions

  • For the Cajeta Sauce with Anise, bring all ingredients except vanilla to boil in 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven on medium-high heat, stirring frequently. (It is important to keep stirring to prevent mixture from boiling over.) Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes or until sauce is reduced by half, coats the back of a spoon and is a deep brown caramel color. Carefully strain cajeta into medium heatproof bowl. Stir in vanilla. Cool to room temperature.

  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Mix dried fruit and 2 tablespoons Cajeta Sauce with Anise in small bowl.

  • Peel off top rind of Brie, leaving 1/4-inch edge. (Leave sides and bottom of Brie intact). Place in pie plate or ovenproof dish. Top with dried fruit mixture. Sprinkle with almonds.

  • Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese softens. Place Brie on serving plate. Serve with apple slices, crackers or French bread slices.
