Well you sure don't need anymore steriling reviews but had to add mine to this. I was looking for something fast, easy and impressive to serve to last minute guest with wine and this fit the bill - had everything in the pantry and it was perfect. This is the first time I've ever had "baked" brie but I assure you it won't be the last. Such an unexpected pleasure with the melting cheese against the sweet of the caramilized pecans - YUM, still thinking about it. Not a crumb was left and everyone was looking for more. I made it exactly as listed right down to serving with apples, crackers and home made sourdough baguettes. Thanks to you, I looked like a pro in the kitchen, and DH wants to know when we'll have it again. Thanks Miss Erin for sharing. As an update, made this again with continued rave reviews, but this time found a round "mini" pie dish that was perfect for the round brie and toppings and looked even better - I'm posting a picture of that to show how great it looked.
I decided to make this appetizer for a girls' night at my house and it was a huge hit! I put the ingredients together in a baking dish and left it covered in the refrigerator until I was ready to bake it. No one had tried this before and it was gone before I had a chance to grab seconds! I used more pecans than suggested - I kept adding until the top was completely covered - then added more brown sugar as well. I will definitely make this again! Very easy and very classy.
Can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet! I've probably made this 5 times in the last 2 years for parties, Thanksgiving, etc. Everyone always loves this! It's so easy to put together and had a nice WOW factor. I always serve with crackers and apple slices. Nice change from the usual brie with preserves.
really good... but take care to not eat it straight out of the oven as it will burn the roof of your mouth! two days later i'm still uncomfortable! oops! i also added craisins. a nice alternative to my usual brie topping: orange ginger preserves (which is also delicious).
I made this as part of a birthday dinner for my boyfriend. Such an easy recipe and tastes so great! He loved the taste of this and wants it again.
A real crowd-pleaser! I made this exactly as posted, except I added some dried cranberries. This could not be easier and was a great hit on Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing!
This did not make it past the second day over Thanksgiving! Very easy to make and completely satisfying!
EXCELLENT recipe. I made it for a large gathering which included fans of Brie and those who supposedly didn't care for it. The slight sweetness really enhances the flavor and converted some new fans! Very simple to make.
I was looking for a baked brie recipe without puff pastry. This was perfectl! I didn't add the butter and I'm glad I didn't as it was plenty rich without it. My brie wheel was 20 oz, so I cut it in half to make 2 wheels and just used one. I put it cut-side up in my dish and then topped and baked as directed. Yummy! Can't wait to make the second wheel. :)
easy, special, and delicious! i have made this twice and the second time used slivered almonds instead of pecans, and added a handful of dried cranberries. fantastic and festive either way!
