Need a Holiday Appetizer? This Cranberry Maple Pecan Baked Brie is Perfect!
The Holidays are about to be upon us and that means we need a great appetizer to take to parties or serve at our party. There are so many great options out there but I love brie so I chose to share this one with you today!
I made three appetizers in a Facebook and Instagram live video this week with my friend Aimee. The first one is this Cranberry Maple Pecan Baked Brie. The second one is my Bacon Wrapped Cranberry Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates. The last one is a Charcuterie board. I hope you like the video and it helps you up your holiday appetizer game.
I love having appetizers for dinner sometimes when life gets busy. They are a bunch of easy to make things that go great together. If you have an impromptu get together it is always good to have a few things on hand to serve your guests. This recipe would be perfect for a last minute happy hour or invite to a get-together. It solves the question “what can I bring?”

I love this recipe so much because the Brie is perfectly melty and the toppings are a little sweet but not overpowering. There is nothing better than melty gooey cheese!
What you need for this recipe:
1 Round of Brie
1/4 Cup Pecans
1/4 Cup Organic Dried Cranberries
2 TBSP Organic Maple Syrup
A baking dish to cook the brie
Crackers, veggies or toasted bread to serve it with.
To make this recipe extra delicious, toast the pecans in a pan and season with salt. Stir until brown but don’t burn. As soon as you smell them they are close to being done.
Once they are toasted, put them on a cutting board. Rough chop them and add to a bowl. Add cranberries to them. Drizzle with maple syrup and mix.
Cut the top off of the Brie. Be careful not to cut too much of the future cheesy deliciousness off. I made a small cut along the top side then scraped the top layer off.
Put the Brie into the baking dish and top with the pecan mixture.
Cover and bake at 375 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. You want to serve it when the inside is gooey. If you over bake it and it runs out, it won’t look as pretty but will still taste yummy! You can use a spatula and scoop it back together if needed.
Serve with veggies, crackers or toasted bread.Jump to Recipe
