Baked Brie with Apples and Pecans

This is a sponsored post written by us on behalf of Dairy MAX, your local dairy council. All opinions are 100% ours.

There is so much to love about baked brie.

Melted brie is the perfect stage for a number of delicious ingredient toppers. 

We decided at whip up our baked brie appetizer with seasonal apples, local pecans, and bubbly brown sugar. The added aroma of cinnamon will fill your kitchen with autumn scents better than a candle any day.

It really is the perfect fall appetizer recipe! Just check out how beautiful it looks. 

Our baked brie cheese was the starter of our three-course menu that we created for you all in partnership with Dairy Max. We whipped up this baked brie alongside our carbonara pasta recipe and a dessert of sous vide creme brulee.

We think this is the best baked brie recipe out there, but our mini baked brie bite recipe might be a close second.

Baked Brie with Pecans and Apples

Ingredients:

  • 1 Brie wheel
  • 1 granny smith apple, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup pecans, chopped
  • Crackers and sliced apples, for serving

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Use a baked brie cooking vessel or any other oven-safe dish. We picked up this mini cast iron skillet and we just love how it comes with a wooden trivet. It works perfect for baked brie.

Top your whole brie cheese wheel with a few pecans. The oven will help to toast the pecans as you’re cooking brie.

Put the brie in the oven.

Peel your apple with a vegetable peeler and then chop into small pieces. 

Meanwhile, add the apples, chopped pecans, maple syrup, cinnamon, and brown sugar in a skillet. Cool for a few minutes until the apples soften and the brown sugar turns into a syrupy consistency.

Once your warm brie looks puffed out and slightly melty, remove it from the oven. It will take about 15 minutes, more or less, depending on the type of brie you use.

Top the warm brie with the apple and pecan mixture.

Serve your baked brie with crackers, baguette slices, or apple slices. Dive in and enjoy!
