Baked Brie with Dried Cherries, Apricots, and Nuts

This recipe is very versatile. You can change up the dried fruit and nuts you choose to use. You can add herbs like rosemary or chives if you want a more savory taste or add a bit more honey for a sweeter taste. We like to serve ours with crackers but you can use freshly baked bread if you like as well. You’ll want to be sure that it has a crispy crust so that it really holds up when you scoop up the brie.

Do you take the rind of brie before baking?

The rind on brie is the outer layer, which sits between the mottled-white cheese and its edible but rubbery grayish covering. Rinds are usually removed before cooking because they become tough if cooked too long or at high temperatures. In this recipe, you will remove the rind and then place it in parchment paper to hold its shape.

What happens if you bake brie too long?

Yes, it is possible. The brie becomes hard and rubbery, at which point it’s no longer an ideal texture. Be sure to follow the cooking time and temperature carefully.
