  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Brush both sides of the baguette slices with the butter olive oil and line them up on a baking sheet. Set aside.
  2. In another small bowl, stir together the cranberries, balsamic vinegar, sugar, and rosemary. Spread these out on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Place the cranberries in the oven. Roast for five minutes, then add the tray of baguette slices to the oven. Roast for an additional 6 minutes then remove the baguette slices, flip them over, and return to the oven for another 4-6 minutes, or until crispy and golden.
  4. Remove both the cranberries and baguette slices from the oven. Top each baguette with a slice of brie and a spoonful of cranberries. Garnish with leftover rosemary or thyme if desired.
