Product Talk: Maple-Pecan Baked Brie


Maple-Pecan Baked BrieI love lolling around the Brookshire’s cheese case. There are so many beautiful cheeses, and I’m making it my personal mission to try them all.

You might wonder what to do with a soft, fragrant wheel of brie. Brie is a soft cow’s milk cheese with a soft rind that can either be eaten or discarded. I eat it, personally as it is completely edible and gives a nice dimension to the cheese.

You can spread brie on a cracker, just as it is, or you can bake it, which makes a wonderful, nutty, melted spread with a rich taste and a decadent feel.

Maple and pecans are the perfect fall pairing with a wheel of brie, and they give a sweetness to the slight bitterness of the rind. This is great for a party or an appetizer for your holiday meal.

Maple-Pecan Baked Brie

Ingredients:
8 oz wheel of brie
2 Tbs real maple syrup
2 Tbs brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
sliced baguette, crackers or apple slices, for serving

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350° F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place wheel of brie on the paper. Bake for 15 minutes or until softened. Remove from the oven, and set brie on a serving plate to cool slightly.

While the cheese cools, heat maple syrup, brown sugar and cinnamon over low heat in a small saucepan. Stir until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes; stir in pecans. Pour the syrup mixture over the brie, and serve immediately. This is delicious with Granny Smith apples.
