Baked Pecan Maple Brie

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well and enjoying some spring weather.

Indeed, I did not realize until yesterday the spring had already officially started! Like over a week ago LOL Well, I am not being able to keep myself up to date lately. Yeah, those hectic days plus some more important thoughts in my head.

But at least I have this Baked Pecan Maple Brie to share with you to celebrate spring and maple season. I made and photographed this recipe also last fall along with this Maple Rum Cocktail and these Candied Maple Pecan Crepes. I know – I have a huge archive of unpublished recipes that I try using every now and then.

Now, who loves baked brie, please raise your hand(s)? I do! And I searched my blog’s archives to provide you with lots of ideas…just to realize I’d only shared one recipe before, Baked Cranberry Walnut Brie. And nothing really in my archives of the unpublished material, either. But I do remember making baked brie often, especially last year.

That means I never really had a chance to grab a camera. And who can blame me? Ooey, gooey, and bubbly cheesy situation with tasty toppings. Sometimes you want to gobble it up right away, and no food blogger’s obligations can stop you, right? :)

But I am totally glad this wasn’t the case. Thus I am able to share this Baked Pecan Maple Brie with you today. My friends: it’s seriously good. It’s all what you want – savoury, buttery, and sweet. You can play a little bit more by accentuating either its sweet or savory side. For instance, you can add a touch of cinnamon or cardamom. Or instead balance the sweetness by adding some smoked paprika, chipotle, or other savoury spices. That’s totally up to you. Either way, the result would be delicious.

I hope you like this Baked Pecan Maple Brie, and you will celebrate the maple syrup season with enjoying a drink or two. If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.

Cheers!

Ingredients

  • 1 medium wheel of brie (200-250 gr.)

  • 1/4 cup (60 gr). butter

  • 1/2 cup (~110 ml) maple syrup

  • about 1 cup (~120 gr.) pecan halves

  • a good pinch of salt

  • a pinch of cinnamon, cardamom. and ginger each (optional)

  • fresh thyme

Directions

  • In a pan combine the butter and maple syrup over high medium heat and cook for about 2 minutes, until combined and slightly thickened.
  • Reduce heat to low. Stir in the pecans (You can chop them if desired) and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5-6 minutes, until nicely toasted. If desired, also stir in some cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger.
  • In the meantime, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Unwrap the brie and place in a small, shallow ovenproof dish slightly larger than the brie (or onto a tray lined with parchment paper.) Score the top in a crosshatch pattern with a knife – few marks would be enough. Make sure you do not go all the way through to the bottom.
  • Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes or until hot and gooey.
  • Remove from the oven and garnish with the candied pecans. Enjoy right away!

    I can’t blame you for forgetting to take photos! An ooey, gooey, and bubbly cheesy situation just requires that you dig straight in. :-) I love the sweet + savory combination here with the brie, maple and pecans. This one is right up my alley. It would be a great appetizer to serve when company comes to visit!

    I made a similar recipe a few years ago when I catered my company’s Christmas party, it was a huge hit. Something about the creamy buttery flavour of the brie against the sweet, crunchy nuts is incredibly good.
