Baked Maple Brie with Pecans and Cranberries

December 6, 2010

Not only is this a seriously delicious pre-dinner snack, it’s also so pretty and festive looking – perfect for the holidays. My lovely friend made this a couple years ago and it immediately jumped onto my must-make-list. This is something I’ll make time and time again. Don’t you just love recipes like this?

Ingredients:

Round wheel of Brie cheese (it’s really good so go for the largest size)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup pecans
1/4 dried cranberries

Place the brie in the center of a shallow baking dish or ceramic pie plate. In a small bowl, mix well the maple syrup and brown sugar. Spread the pecans and cranberries over and around the brie and finish off by drizzling the syrup/sugar mixture on top. Bake at 325 for about 20 minutes. Please make this!  Enjoy!

    I made this last night and it was a huge hit! My only comment is to watch the cooking time depending on your oven. Mine is a little hotter so I should have cooked it for about 5 mins less. I will definitely make this again, everyone asked for the recipe as they too want to make it.

  7. I’ve had this before but baked in phyllo pastry – It was a huge hit – I can’t wait to try this baked inside a phyllo crust then you cut it open to serve – Thanks for the recipe!

    quebec way to do it : boil your maple syrup until you get a nice foaming syrup, it will turm your syrup to taffy. do not add brown sugar, the taffy will be sweet enough, and thick enough. Regalez-vous!

  9. The recipe is fabulous and sooo easy! Also made it with black walnuts and it was even better!! Making it again for New Years!

  10. This sounds absolutely delicious!!
