Cinnamon Brie with Honey Drizzle

This Cinnamon Brie with Honey Drizzle is a wonderful way to celebrate #NationalCheeseLoversDay

Do you love cheese? Of course you do, you're not insane. (Full disclosure: my husband and son do not like cheese and are, therefore, insane). Well, today is National Cheese Lovers Day and I intend to celebrate my love of cheese!

And love it I do. You've probably noticed how darn many recipes I post that feature cheese. Packed with calcium and protein—and all that creamy, dreamy flavor—cheese makes me happy at breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

And that's why I love going to events at the French Cheese Board (FCB) in New York City. If you follow me on Instagram, you'll have seen some pictures I shared from some various parties there.

The FCB is a studio devoted to all things French cheese. The shop there offers a small, curated selection of cheeses at great prices—and there's always one cheese that's 50% off retail. They announce that promotional item via social media at the beginning of each month, so if you follow them you'll know just what's on sale. This month's featured cheese is: le brie.

That's perfect because I'm featuring a brie recipe today! I first tasted this at a
PrĂ©sident cheeses pop-up shop at the FCB. It's very simple—only three ingredients—but packed with delicious flavor. 

  • 1 wedge of brie (about 10-12 oz)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup honey 
*These ingredient amounts are approximate; feel free to change the ratio to suit your preferences.
Take the cheese out of the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before you intend to serve it. Place your brie on a cheese board or platter. Sprinkle generously with the cinnamon. You can leave the cinnamon sprinkled loosely, or you can pat it onto the rind of the cheese. Serve with honeyso that guests can drizzle it themselvesand crackers or apple slices.

This Cinnamon Brie with Honey Drizzle offers a wonderful combination of sweet and savory and earthy—especially perfect for entertaining in the winter or fall.
