Baked Brie Cheese


One of my favorite things to eat is Brie Cheese.  I love it any way you could possibly imagine, but I especially enjoy Baked Brie Cheese.  Is there anything better than that warm, creamy smooth texture of Baked Brie Cheese?  One of my favorite recipes is Apple and Almond Baked Brie Puff Pastry but I have made it time and time again and I was ready for some new inspiration for our Holiday Cocktails and Appetizers #SundaySupper.

I love the power of social media and today was a perfect example of how it works.  I posted on facebook and tweeted that I needed some inspiration, I asked my followers for their favorite Brie Recipes.  Immediately there were amazing suggestions in my stream.  I want to try them all and I may just do that.  I chose two that I just couldn’t wait to try because they sounded so amazing for this week’s #SundaySupper Holiday Party.

The first Baked Brie Cheese Recipe came from Scott who is @1educatedpalate on twitter and a regular #SundaySupper participant. Scott and I have been twitter friends for a while now and have shared many recipes.  His recipes are always fabulous and this recipe for Baked Brie Cheese with Praline Sauce is exceptional!

Are you wondering where the second baked brie cheese recipe is?  It will be posting soon and I promise, it is as good as this one!

Baked Brie Cheese with Praline Sauce #SundaySupper
Recipe type: Appetizers
This fabulous Baked Brie Cheese with Praline Sauce came from my friend Scott @1educatedpalate
  • 1 (16-ounce) wheel of Brie
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup toasted and chopped pecans or walnuts will work too.
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • Crackers, to serve
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Shave off the top rind of the Brie using a knife or a vegetable peeler (it is easiest to do this after it has been in the freezer for about 20 minutes). If the Brie came in a wooden box, return it to the original container. If not, create a makeshift "box" out of a few layers of aluminum foil, leaving the top of the Brie exposed.
  3. Place the cheese on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until warm and gooey, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes before serving. Carefully transfer to a serving platter; you do not want the rind to puncture, if possible.
  4. While the Brie is cooling, make the praline sauce.
  5. Praline Sauce Recipe:
  6. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, maple syrup, and pecans. Cook, stirring constantly, until all of the ingredients are well combined, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in coarsely ground black pepper and remove from heat. Allow the mixture to cool for 5 to 10 minutes, until it has thickened up just a bit. Dollop the warm sauce over the baked cheese. (There may be extra praline sauce.) Serve with assorted crackers.
  7. My Note: The praline sauce can be made the day before. To reheat, microwave in increments of 20 seconds, or heat in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until warm.

This made me now to want some baked brie … argh … can’t have it today. I have to wait until next week.


Hezzi-D December 16, 2012 at 8:17 am

Wow this looks awesome! I usually bake mine in a puff pastry which is tasty but I think the praline sauce on top would be wonderful for the holidays.


Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers December 16, 2012 at 8:40 am

I make a very similar baked Brie, but with a slosh of Cognac instead of maple syrup! Next time, I will add BOTH!!!

I loved baked Brie but have never made it myself. Both of these look amazing! Can’t wait to see the recipe for the next one…and any others you try. I’m printing this one!


Arlene@FlourOnMyFace December 16, 2012 at 12:09 pm

I’ve only tried baked brie with a cranberry sauce. I bet it tastes great with this praline sauce. I may have to try it for my next party!


Paula @ Vintage Kitchen December 16, 2012 at 12:28 pm

Brie is one of my favorite cheeses, by far, and to pair it with sweet praline… that´s pure heaven! I have to try this Isabel

Brie is always a hit at every party! I just bought some today. I can’t wait to give this recipe a shot!


Tara December 16, 2012 at 6:11 pm

Brie I would have to say is my favorite cheese but it only inches ahead of all the rest as I am a huge cheese lover!! I agree with you about it being baked, nothing better.


Katie December 16, 2012 at 7:16 pm

Baked brie always makes me think of the holidays for some reason – I love the melty goodness!!!!


Brianne @ Cupcakes & Kale Chips December 16, 2012 at 8:58 pm

I make something similar and it is so good. Brie is such an easy way to make a fancy appetizer.

After all the talk the other day about brie recipes and now you go and serve this brie with an amazing praline sauce I am going to have to go get some brie and make some myself because the craving is just too strong.

Love the idea of brie…have yet to try praline sauce, but sounds delish :)


Nancy @ gottagetbaked December 18, 2012 at 8:18 pm

I love Brie too, Isabel, and have yet to try the baked brie with pastry recipe you posted a few weeks (or was it months?) ago. This one sounds so decadent and delicious – I’m going to have to try both! It’d be the perfect dinner with a big baguette ;)


Susan December 19, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Isabel the praline sauce just makes this! I’ve never seen baked brie this way but I want to try it. Yum!
