INGREDIENTS FOR BAKED BRIE WITH JAM

  • Brie – The more the merrier when it comes to brie, so go for the large wheel. Sixteen ounces to be exact. Trust us — this appetizer is going to go fast. Be sure you check the expiration date before adding the Brie to your cart as it is a soft cheese and does not have quite as long of a shelf life as other cheeses. According to TheSpruce.com, the rind should look fresh and white, and you should beware of wet, slimy, or brown spots.
  • Fruit Spread or Jam – For Baked Brie with Jam, you can use any type of fruit jam or spread that you like! Featured here is apricot fruit spread , but you could also use raspberry, strawberry, or apple preserves! Love fruit and brie? Put Baked Brie with Apples on your recipe bucket list — an addictively yummy brie appetizer topped with cinnamon apples and walnuts, all smothered in a quick and easy caramel sauce.
  • Almonds – Almonds add both texture and flavor to your baked brie! However, you could sub in walnuts or pecans if you’d like.
  • Honey
  1. Prep – Be sure to preheat the oven and have ready a brie baker or a small baking dish with a 2-3 cup capacity.
  2. Remove the Rind – Removing the rind for Baked Brie with Jam is optional, but it does happen to make this starter easier to eat. For easier removal, place the brie in the freezer for 10-15 minutes prior to cutting it. Use a sharp knife to shave off the top and sides of the brie. Then, you can either place it in the brie baker whole or cut it into chunks and place it in a small baking dish.
  3. Add the Topping – Dollop your choice of jam across the top of the brie, drizzle with honey, add the almonds, and a pinch of salt.
  4. Bake – Bake the Brie uncovered for 13-15 minutes, until it is hot and bubbly.

Enjoying Brie Cheese

You can of course enjoy Brie cheese just as it is. Do allow it to come to room temperature to fully appreciate its flavor. Try serving it as a final course to your meal along with fresh fruit and good bread. All sorts of white wines go well with Brie including Chablis, Riesling, and Gewurztraminer, but you may also like it with a sweet wine such as Port or Sherry, especially if you are serving it with dried fruits.

In France, Brie cheese is made in the region to the east of Paris, principally in the department of Seine et Marne. Two types of Brie cheese have an AOC ( appellation d’origine contrôlée ): Brie de Meaux and Brie de Melun. In order to receive these appellations, the cheese must adhere to certain standards and be made in a particular area. A wheel of Brie de Meaux can weigh more then five pounds and measure a foot and a half in diameter (that's for a really big party!)

Although it originated in France, this soft cow's milk cheese is now made all over the world. Brie that is made from unpasteurized milk is considered to be superior tasting by some cheese connoisseurs, but you may only be able to find a pasteurized product. Don't let that stop you from enjoying these baked Brie recipes.


Easy Baked Brie

Everyone needs a dish in their party food repertoire that can be flawlessly executed no matter how hectic the hosting duties become. Not only does this baked brie fit that bill, but it’s so delicious, and delivers such incredible bang for the buck, that you may find yourself assembling one at two o’clock on a Sunday morning, or rationalizing about why it’s fine to make it for yourself for Tuesday’s lunch.

To make this recipe even easier, feel free to substitute the accoutrements with anything else that you might have on-hand. Simply drizzle with honey, for instance, rather than honeycomb, skip the nuts, or use a different fruit butter or perhaps an onion jam. As long as you’ve got something crispy to hold up the melted cheese, and something to add a bit of complexity and sweetness, it’s hard to go too far wrong. In fact, why not have the ingredients for several variations on hand, trying them one after the other? That might be the best plan of all, because, whether it’s a swinging soiree or a party of one, once the platter hits the table, it’s sure to be quickly cleared. Turns out that the hardest thing about this easy baked brie is resisting it!


Baked Brie with Cranberries & Almonds

Soft, warm gooey Brie cheese topped with dried cranberries, almonds and drizzled with honey. The perfect cheese for a holiday gathering.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces, weight Brie Cheese, Round Shaped And Rind Peeled
  • ¼ cups Dried Cranberries
  • 8 whole Almonds, Chopped Small
  • 2 teaspoons Honey

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325ºF. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper.

Add cheese to the center of your baking sheet and top with cranberries and sprinkle with almonds. Place in oven and bake approximately 7–10 minutes. Be sure to watch it so it doesn’t melt.

Grab the corners of the parchment paper and place cheese onto serving plate. I cut the parchment paper to fit the plate, which makes it easier to transport the cheese.


Recipe Summary

  • ½ 17.3 ounce package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed (1 sheet)
  • 2 tablespoons jalapeño pepper jelly, apple jelly, or apricot jelly
  • 2 4.5 ounces rounds Brie or Camembert cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped nuts, toasted
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Apple and/or pear slices

Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a baking sheet set aside. Unfold pastry onto a lightly floured surface roll into a 16x10-inch rectangle. Cut into two 8-inch circles reserve trimmings.

Spread jelly over top of each cheese round. Sprinkle with nuts lightly press nuts into jelly.

Combine egg and water set aside. Place pastry circles over cheese rounds. Invert cheese and pastry. Brush edges of circles with a little of the egg mixture. Bring edges of pastry up and over cheese rounds, pleating and pinching edges to cover and seal. Trim excess pastry. Place rounds, smooth sides up, on prepared baking sheet. Brush egg mixture over tops and sides. Cut small slits for steam to escape. Using hors d'oeuvre cutters, cut shapes from reserved pastry. Brush shapes with egg mixture place on top of rounds.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until pastry is deep golden brown. Let stand for 10 to 20 minutes before serving. Serve with apple and/or pear slices.


Baked Brie with Balsamic Roasted Cranberries and Smoked Almonds

We have a Christmas Eve tradition at our house of serving a variety of holiday appetizers, and this Baked Brie with Balsamic Roasted Cranberries and Smoked Almonds will definitely be making an appearance on the menu.

I just love a good baked brie. There’s something about all that melted cheese that I find irresistible. I mean, melted cheese…..what’s not to love?

And the balsamic infused cranberry compote that tops this baked brie is what makes it perfect for the holidays. The smoked almonds put it over the top!

I especially love that a baked brie never fails to impress at a party or gathering. It’s the kind of thing that seems “fancy” but it requires practically no effort.

Exactly the kind of appetizer you need for all those holiday gatherings!

This baked brie pretty much has it all. It’s creamy and smooth, with a hint of sweet, a bit of tang from the balsamic vinegar, and a salty crunch from the smoked almonds.

Best of all, this beautiful appetizer only takes about 20 minutes to put together. And you could even prepare the cranberry topping ahead of time and reheat it. It’s really so simple.

And if you’re wondering, yes, you do bake the brie with the rind on it. Once it’s baked and you cut into it, all the melted cheese inside will be released.

This is wonderful served with crackers or lightly toasted baguette slices. However you serve it, your friends and family are sure to be impressed by this classic baked brie with a holiday twist.


How to Use a Brie Baking Dish

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Carefully scrape off the very top layer of the white Brie rind with a knife (This is an optional step for some people. You can leave it on if you are simply enjoying the Brie by itself.)
  3. Top with some toasted nuts, sliced fruit with a drizzle of either honey or agave nectar. Or you can choose to drizzle a bit of homemade jam to sweeten.
  4. Cover and bake for 15 minutes or until gooey and bubbling
  5. Serve immediately with your choice of breads, veggies or crackers

And for those of us that like a little variety, we’ve come up with some classic as well as a few lesser known, but equally scrumptious, baked brie recipes that you can use with your newly discovered brie baking dish. And a little tip…..if you’re giving a brie baker as a gift of any sort, simply include a couple of these recipes with it to make it a snap for anyone to get going with using one.

Buttery Almond Baked Brie

This week celebrates 4 years of Baked Bree. I could not be more proud or feel more a part of something special. When I started Baked Bree, I knew nothing of the food blogging world, I had never heard of Pioneer Woman, and I really thought that a food blog was my own idea. How’s that for living under a rock?

I started Baked Bree at a time when I really needed something to do and focus on. A hobby. I had just shut down my photography business and wanted to focus on my family and being a mom. I decided to chronicle family recipes and keep track of what I cooked online. I thought that maybe my mom and my best friend might take a look at it every once in awhile. I had no idea that it would become what it is today – a business that has allowed me to meet incredible people, see many new places, and do some pretty freakin’ amazing things.

I am so grateful for each and every one of you that comes here to grab a new recipe, cook a meal for someone you love, and participate in the community of gracious and lovely readers. I read every single comment and try my absolute best to respond to all of them. I love to see pictures of Baked Bree recipes that you are cooking on Instagram, Facebook, and your own blogs. It makes me happier than you could possibly ever know.

So thank you. Thank you for being here for the last 4 years, and I hope to see you for the next 4 and beyond.

I find a certain irony in the fact that I have never posted a recipe for Baked Brie until now. Having people misspell my name for my entire life came in handy when it came time to name my blog. I actually make it frequently, but the simple truth is that baked brie is really hard to take a nice picture of. I feel this is a good way to circle back and celebrate this birthday. In the beginning, I knew nothing. I still don’t know a lot, but one of the things that I am most proud of is that I tried and I didn’t give up. I worked very hard to take better pictures, improve my writing, and be a better blogger.

You have to be good at a lot of things when it comes to blogging. You need to be a really good cook, take beautiful pictures, write well, know lots of tech-y website stuff, be a marketer, network, engage, basically wear all. of. the. hats. I am still not at a place where I can say that I am good at all of those things, but what I can say is that I have gotten to a place where I do it my own way and figure it out as I go, and I am totally fine with it. If you are just starting a blog, here are 4 things I wish that I would have known on my first day of running this little space on the Interwebs.

1. It takes a lot of work. As I mentioned, there are a lot of moving pieces. Don’t let it overwhelm you. Keep plugging along. When I first started (and finally figured out who this Pioneer Woman was that I kept hearing about) I would look at other blogs that were super successful and get so discouraged. You cannot compare their middle to your beginning. Everyone in this blogging world started from a single post.

2. Do your own thing. It is very easy to see other’s that are successful and use their formula to try to emulate the same look, feel, or voice. Your actual readership, the ones that come day after day, are coming for YOU. They really don’t care about the brownies or the chicken recipe as much as they want to hear your stories and find out who you are. You are unique and that is what will make your blog special.

3. If you started a blog solely for the purpose of making money, I am sorry to say that you are missing out on the good stuff. Do I make money from this blog? Yes. But would do it every single day even if I didn’t make a dime? Absolutely. I love it so much. I get to use my creative gifts every single day. I have made amazing friends with readers. And other bloggers? OH MY GOD, some of the most loving and supportive people on the planet. Some of the deepest and most meaningful relationships in my life are with people that I have never hugged in real life. And some I have because this community is real, and we are here for each other. It’s amazing.

4. Have fun. Seriously, this blogging thing is a lot of fun. Could I do more to grow my blog and work on new projects, have a million Twitter followers, and all kinds of other stuff? Sure. We all have only so many hours in a day. I love cooking, taking pictures, and writing to you. That is where my priorities are. Don’t let the business-y stuff take you away from the thing that really matters doing what you love and engaging with people. It is easy to get wrapped up in so much of the little things that it clouds the big picture.

Show up, have fun, and work hard. You’ll do a lotta dishes, but I promise, it is totally worth it.

This is my favorite way to make and eat baked brie. I prefer to add condiments to my cheese after I bake it. I heat the cheese in the oven until it is gooey and melty. I toast the almonds in butter (my mom always made them this way, so I do too) and then add honey or jam to the platter. I add some fresh and dried fruits, crackers, and toasted bread. I add some brie to a toasted piece of bread, drizzle some honey, and add almonds. The perfect bite of sharp, sweet, and crunch.

1 wheel brie cheese
1/2 cup sliced almonds
2 Tablespoons butter
Jam or honey
Fresh fruit (apples, pears, grapes, and strawberries are the ones I use the most)
Dried fruit (figs, apricots, cranberries)
Toasted bread
Crackers

Score the cheese. Place on a baking sheet and put in a 350 degree oven until the cheese is soft, about 15 to 20 minutes. Melt the butter in a medium sauté pan. Add the almonds and toast until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to cool. Arrange the fruits, crackers, and bread on a platter. Add the almonds to a bowl and set out honey.
