Baked brie is a must make holiday appetizer! 

  • If you’re friends are like mine, then they LOVE starting out any party with a cheesy situation! 
  • The minute you pull this golden appetizer out of the oven people will be fawning over whats inside! It’s melty, gooey, and bursting with flavor from cherry preserves, pecans and fresh rosemary. This baked brie makes a statement at any holiday party and is great for impressing guests (when you’re very short on time!). 
  • It’s easy to make! Let your frozen puff pastry thaw out for a bit and then you’re good to go! Trim the top of the brie rind off, top with preserves, pecans, rosemary and wrap up the brie like a little present. Brush with egg wash and pop it in the oven until the center is soft and melty, about 35-40 minutes. 
  • It can be made ahead! You can get your brie prepped and wrapped in puff pastry, wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to bake!
  • Very customizable! You can swap out the cherry preserves for any flavor that you like as well as the pecans!

Step by step grid on how to make baked brie. How to make Cherry Pecan Baked Brie:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 
  2. Sprinkle a small amount of flour onto a surface and roll out the puff pastry to about a 10-12’’ square. Gently slice the top of the brie rind off and discard. Top brie with cherry jam, chopped nuts and rosemary. 
  3. In a small bowl whisk together the egg and set aside. 
  4. Place puff pastry over the top of the toppings and brie. Gently place your hand on top of the center of the brie and flip upside down with the other hand. Wrap the brie on the bottom, securing each flap with a bit of egg wash. 
  5. Flip the brie upside down so the smooth side is facing the top. Brush the top with more egg wash. Garnish off with puff pastry leaves (if desired), brush with egg wash and sprinkle with rosemary and flaky salt. 
  6. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Let brie cool for 5 minutes or so before serving to firm up slightly (will still be gooey and delicious!).

Tips for a great baked brie:

  • Let the brie cool: Let the brie cool for 5 minutes or so once it’s finished baking. It will be like hot lava right out of the oven. 
  • Make the brie ahead of time! You can make this brie the night before or 1-2 days in advance. Wrap the brie tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate. If baking straight from the refrigerator add on an extra five minutes or so of cook time. 
  • Reheating the brie: If you have leftover brie, wrap tightly and refrigerate. Reheat in the oven at 300, lightly tented with foil until the cheese is warmed through and melty. 

What to served with baked brie in puff pastry: 

  • Crackers– I like thicker/seedy crackers. They will hold up to the thick, melty consistency of baked brie. 
  • Toast– You can use little slices of bread that have been toasted or freshly sliced.
  • Apples– Apple slices (green and red) are necessary for a brie dip!
