Cranberry Maple Baked Brie Collage

The first time that I tried Brie was at my boss’s party and it was love at first site. I loooove (wonder if there is enough “o’s” to show the love) cheese and Brie became one of my favorites that night. It’s great in any shape and form but here is the question…

To rind or not to rind! Meaning, rind on or off?

It really is a personal preference and mostly depends on the quality of the cheese. On a nice Brie, the rind can be quite good and a nice flavor addition. Although, if you the cheese is not the best quality, the rind will be awful! So when making this baked brie appetizer, know your cheese. If you have a favorite brand, you will know if you want to keep the rind of take it off.

If you are planning on taking off the rind, refrigerate the cheese and make sure it’s nice and cold before you are cutting. It will be much easier to take off the rind off of cold cheese.

Cranberry Maple Baked Brie for Progressive Dinner #progressivedinner13
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  • 1 8-oz Brie round
  • ½ cup finely chopped pecans
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • 3 tbs pure maple syrup
  • 1 egg for eggwash
  1. *You can either use both puff pastries in the package, one for wrapping the Brie and part of the other for the leaves. If you only want to use one sheet of puff pastry, cut off a thin slice to use for leaves.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375.
  3. Mix pecans, cranberries and maple syrup.
  4. Lay out the sheet of puff pastry. Place half of nut/cranberry mixture in the center and spread it in a circle the same size as the Brie.
  5. Place the Brie over the mixture and cover it with the rest of the nut/cranberry mixture.
  6. Bring the edges of the pastry up, a little piece at a time, overlapping. Bring the edges together at the top and press together to seal.
  7. Cut the leaves out of separate piece of pastry and add them to the top.
  8. Whisk the egg and brush the pastry covered brie all over the top and sides.
  9. Place the Brie on the parchment paper, on a cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes (until the pastry is golden brown).
