Baked Brie Recipe With Pecans

Killer App: Baked Brie With Pecans

Every party needs a cheese plate, and warm, baked brie makes a comforting cold-weather addition. While some recipes serve up the gooey goodness in puff pastry, this version takes an even simpler approach, with just four ingredients to spread atop accompanying crackers or crostini.

I worried that without a pastry shell, the bake-ahead brie would cool off too quickly, but the maple-pecan-topped wedge stayed warm well after serving. It doesn't hurt that my guests scooped it up faster than anything else on the app table. Learn to make baked brie now.

Baked Brie With Pecans

Ingredients

1 small wheel of Brie or Camembert (about 9 ounces)
1/2 cup pecan pieces
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
Crackers or sliced baguette, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Place cheese on a rimmed baking sheet; bake until softened, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate; cool about 20 minutes.
  2. While cheese cools, place nuts on a clean baking sheet; bake until toasted and fragrant, 7 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle nuts over cheese.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and maple syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat; simmer until foamy, 1 to 2 minutes. Drizzle warm sauce over slightly cooled cheese and nuts; serve with crackers or baguette slices.

Serves 8.

Thanks! I will leave the rind on and see what happens! I am going to make it this weekend for guests!

Italia_girl, I agree that you should leave the rind on the cheese, but after baking it's very easy to eat around, or you could probably remove it before adding the topping.

I just booked marked this...looks absolutely fabulous. I love that the pecans and maple syrup give it more of a fall/winter flavor! And Italia_Girl- the rind is really what allows you to "bake" the brie without it melting into a gloopy mess. You could probably remove it from just the top though without it becoming too messy!
