Baked Maple Brie with Pecans and Cranberries

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.


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.



  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. This is so yummy. I used caramel sauce instead of maple syrup because that’s what I had in the fridge. It was just as tasty.
