Great appetizer. Looks nice garnished with grapes or you can slice off chunks and serve with a nice green salad. For best results put Brie in freezer for one hour.

It%u2019s best to use a firm, fairly unripe Brie for this recipe. Freezing Brie for about 20 minutes is a trick that will keep the cheese from melting too much during baking, while still allowing it to become soft and spreadable.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (11 ounce) brie cheese
  • 2 loaves of refrigerater French bread, Pilsbury
  • 1 teaspoon Frangelico (optional)
  • 1 12 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 12 cup pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and spray 3-quart gratin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Place cheeses side by side in a prepared 3-quart gratin pan, about 2 inches apart.
  3. Twist bread dough around cheese.
  4. Sprinkle Frangelico on top of cheese and top with brown sugar and nuts.
  5. Bake at 350 for 28 to 33 minutes. If nuts start to get too brown, cover very loosely with a small piece of aluminim foil.
  6. Allow to rest 10 minutes prior to serving.
