Cranberry Brie Biscuit Dip

1 (12.3-oz) round brie cheese, at room temperature
1/4 c. cranberry sauce
1/4 c. shredded white cheddar
1 sprig rosemary
Freshly cracked black pepper
Drizzle of honey for garnish
1 (16.3-oz.) can refrigerated biscuits
2 tbsp. butter, melted
1 tbsp.freshly chopped parsley
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Cut biscuits in half and roll into balls. In a small bowl, stir together melted butter and fresh parsley. Place biscuits in a ring around the edge of a medium skillet and brush with butter. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Place brie in the center of the biscuits and use a paring knife to remove the top rind. Bake until brie is melty, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Add cranberry sauce and cheddar to melted brie and gently fold to combine. Smooth the cheese mixture into an even layer and top with rosemary. Return to oven to melt cheddar, 5 to 7 minutes more.
  4. Drizzle with honey and serve hot.

Air Fryer Oat Crisp Apples

  • Apples: My favorite apple type of apples to use for this recipe are either Honeycrisp or Gala apples. Other good options include Pink Lady, Granny Smith or Fuji. Try to use a firmer apples and not a soft apple like Red Delicious for the perfect baked apples in an air fryer. I find that if you use a softer variety of apple, it can fall apart and split easier.
  • Spices: I use a simple combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt, but you could leave out the nutmeg if you wish.
  • Old Fashioned Oats: Otherwise know as rolled oats.
  • Honey: Alternatives to honey are maple syrup or brown sugar.
  • Pumpkin Seeds (Optional): I love the additional crunch pumpkin seeds provide, but they are not required.
  1. Apple Preparation
    Begin by preheating your air fryer. While the air fryer is preheating, prepare the apples. Slice the apple in half through the core. Use a knife or spoon to remove the seeds and core from the center of each apple half. Be carful not to cut too deep and break the apple. Brush each apple half with the melted butter combination. Once finished set aside.
  2. Topping Preparation
    Add all the topping ingredients to a small prep bowl and stir to combine. Make sure to distribute the honey well so all the oats are coated. Once the topping is combined evenly spoon over each apple half.
  3. Baking the Apples
    Spray the basket of your preheated air fryer with cooking spray and carefully place each apple in. Depending on the size of your air fryer you may need to cook in several batches. Close the lid and press START, then AIR CRISP and set the TEMP to 350 degrees F using the arrows. Next, set the TIME to 15 Minutes then press START. Please note that these instructions are specifically for the Ninja Foodi and your air fryer setting may be different.
  4. Finishing Touches
    After 15 minutes check the apples, they should be soft and the oat topping should be browned. Once they are finished remove the apples with tongs and enjoy warm with additional honey, vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
