It’s always a huge hit because everyone loves baked brie. I was a little bit intimidated the first time I made it because I thought it would be much more complicated. Honestly, it’s the easiest thing ever and it tastes SO GOOD.
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.
Baked brie toppings
- Dried fruit
- Fresh thyme leaves
How to bake brie
Preheat the oven to 350F and toast the nuts for 5 to 10 minutes until they are golden brown.
Mix the dried fruits (chopped) with the toasted nuts.
Drizzle on honey and mix.
Place the brie on parchment paper and wrap loosely.
Bake at 350F for about 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and open the parchment paper. You can skip the parchment paper and use a cast iron brie baker if you prefer.
Spoon the nut and fruit mixture over the top.
Serve with crackers or fresh crusty bread.
As soon as you cut into the outer edge of the brie, the inside will ooze out and you’ll be able to scoop it up with your crackers or crusty bread. Your guests will be so impressed with your hard work.
