Holiday Hors D’Oeuvres: Manchester & Leelanau Apricot Preserve

preserves and cheese

Similar to that of a French style Brie, our award-winning Manchester cheese does exceedingly well bake to a gooey perfection. With endless choices of toppings, you can make a wide range of both savory and sweet baked Manchester’s. Today, we will be focusing on a baked Manchester paired with Leelanau Apricot Preserve from American Spoon.

The Recipe


1 Manchester Cheese – Zingerman’s Creamery
½ Cup of American Spoon – Leelanau Apricot Preserves
1 Package of Zingerman’s Bakehouse Baguette

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the Manchester on a baking sheet or in a small oven-safe crock.
Top with ½ a cup of Leelanau Apricot Preserves directly over.
