Charcuterie is a great word. It hits a lot of great sounds in one succinct word. Char-coo-ter-ee. Scientists still say they don’t know what it means, I’m pretty sure. When you’re making a charcuterie board for your guests, this Cranberry Almond Butter Baked Brie is a perfect fit and dip for spreads of all kinds. I make it with JUSTIN’S® Classic Almond Butter, cranberry sauce, and a sprig of rosemary for garnish.
