In Spain, it is considered good luck to eat 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight as we ring in a new year.  Some say, for every sweet grape you eat there will be a good month in the coming year, and for each sour one a bad month.   You can even make a wish with each one you eat!

This simple appetizer recipe is a beautiful way to present a round of brie for a New Year’s Eve celebration.  Serve with crackers or apple slices, and, of course, a glass of bubbly!   This year, may all of your grapes be sweet as we welcome 2013.  Cheers!

Tip:  Brie can be decorated up to 6 hours in advance.  Store, loosely covered with plastic wrap, in refrigerator.  Let cheese come to room temperature before serving.

Brie Cheese with Grapes

2 to 2 1/2 pounds seedless green grapes

1 wheel Brie Cheese (about 2 pounds)

Assorted crackers

Apple wedges

Slice grapes crosswise in half; arrange on top of cheese until completely covered.   Serve with assorted crackers and apple wedges.
