BAKED BRIE

I have such vivid memories of this Baked Brie. It involves my sisters and I have hovered around the island in their kitchens devouring it! Usually this is an appetizer for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Easter in our families.

My love for Brie goes back to French class in high school where we were treated to several French cheeses. I always gravitated towards the Brie.

I have Bible study every Wednesday. I always do Pilates on Wednesdays then go to Bible study and eat half a wheel of brie. Does Pilates. Eats wheel of brie. That should be my tag line.

So yeah, I’ll eat brie by itself but this baked brie combo is dynamite. Brown Sugar, cinnamon pecans, folded up with a flaky puff pastry and gooey Brie.

CAN THIS BAKED BRIE BE MADE AHEAD OF TIME?

Yes. There are two ways to make this baked brie ahead of time:

  1. Bake as directed then refrigerate until time to eat. Bake for 5-7 minutes at 350 degrees to reheat the baked brie or microwave for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Prepare Bake Brie until step 3 (before you bake) and then refrigerate until time to bake.

WHERE DO I FIND BRIE CHEESE?

Brie cheese is a soft cheese that can be found in the deli section of your grocery store.

WHAT SIZE WHEEL OF BRIE DO I USE?

The recipe calls for a wheel of Brie 8-14 ounces. It doesn’t really matter how big it is and in my opinion, the bigger the better.

CAN YOU EAT THE RIND OF BRIE CHEESE?

Yes. Some people don’t prefer eating the rind of the cheese. If this is the case for you, you can gently scrape it off before using it in this recipe. I personally like it and leave it on.

HOW DO I MAKE BAKED BRIE?

  1. First, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Defrost puff pastry for approximately 15 to 20 minutes by laying it out at room temperature. Once it has defrosted, unfold it.

  2. Then in a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Saute the pecans in the butter until golden brown, approximately 5 minutes. Add the cinnamon and stir until pecans are coated well.

  3. Next, place the pecan mixture on top of the Brie and sprinkle the brown sugar over the mixture. Lay the puff pastry out on a flat surface. Place the brie in the center of the pastry. Gather up the edges of the brie, pressing around the brie and gather at the top. Fold and pinch the edges together so it doesn’t come open. Brush the beaten egg over top and side of Brie.

  4. Place Brie on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes until pastry is golden brown.

  5. Serve with crackers and fruit like sliced apples and strawberries.
