Before I get into this epic holiday baked brie, I have been dying to tell you all about my recent trip to the Big Apple!

New York is actually my hometown but having been in California for the last 14 years, it was certainly a little bit of shock to land in the cold, rainy city of Manhattan where my California flip flops had no place.

But flip flops or not, I came off a 6-hour flight to join an amazing group of Fisher bloggers around the country to meet the amazing Chef Alex Guarnaschelli at her restaurant, Butter.

She demonstrated several of her recipes using Fisher Nuts, and this walnut and fontina mac and cheese was probably one of the best mac and cheeses I have ever had.

And with this sweet butternut squash appetizer, I might have sampled the entire platter when no one was looking. It’s just simply amazing as to how a little bit of nuts lends off such great flavor and sophistication to any dish.

And yes, this is a pecan pie cocktail, which was absolutely heavenly.

I also can’t forget to thank the amazing people at Fisher Nuts to sponsor this memorable trip to NYC. I’ll be sure to put those nuts to very good use, like this baked brie here!

Now if you’ve never tried baked brie before, you are in for quite a treat. It’s not hard at all. In fact, this comes together in literally 5 minutes. Yes, only 5 minutes. It’s practically fool-proof!

Just have your puff pastry thawed out, slather on that sweet pumpkin butter, sprinkle on those Fisher Nuts, wrap it up and that’s it. Done and done.

See, I told you it was easy! And after 20-25 minutes, that sweet brie will be oozing out for you to gobble up! But keep in mind that you’ll probably want to make this even after the holidays are long gone. This is just too good to have once a year!

5 minutes25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin butter, homemade or store-bought*
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 (8-ounce) wheel brie cheese, rind trimmed
  • 1/2 cup Fisher Nuts pecan halves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 large egg, beaten

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.
  2. Place puff pastry onto the prepared baking sheet. Spread pumpkin butter evenly over the top, leaving a 1-inch border, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Set the cheese in the center of the sheet and top with pecans and cranberries.
  3. Fold the puff pastry over the sides of the cheese, pleating the edges to fit snugly around the cheese. Pinch the dough together in the center to seal and brush evenly with the egg.
  4. Place into oven and bake until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
  5. Serve warm with crackers.

Notes:

*Pumpkin butter is a preserved spread that tastes like pumpkin pie in a jar! This can easily be found at your local grocery store but I personally love using Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Delicious! Easy app to prepare for guests!

  2. Where can i find a video for each of your recipe? I love your page and all your recipes! 

  3. OMG! This appetizer is too die for! A big hit! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

  4. The recipe calls for chopped pecan halves, but the photos show whole pecans. Do you think this is better with whole pecans? It definitely looks better than chopped.

    Lookers great — can’t wait to try this.

  5. Will you be sharing any of the other recipes from Chef Alex Guarnaschelli? It all looks so yummy!

  6. Baked brie is the best, love this pumpkin-pecan version!

  7. I love pumpkin pie…bought I’d rather have this yumminess any day!

  8. This is something I’ve never even heard of but it sounds and looks absolutely divine! I will definitely be trying it! I hope you’re able to get on YouTube soon even though your directions are always wonderful and easy to follow. I’m so glad you exist because my cooking has increased because I trust your recipes! They’re always so “Damn Delicious”… 🙂

  9. This looks wonderful. Where do the dried cranberries go?

    • Cristina, please refer to the second step:

      Place puff pastry onto the prepared baking sheet. Spread pumpkin butter evenly over the top, leaving a 1-inch border, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Set the cheese in the center of the sheet and top with pecans and cranberries.

  10. You mention “pumpkin butter”.
    Is that a store bought item or just pumpkin puree and butter blended together?

  11. So delicious looking and so easy- I have to remember to thaw out the pastry sheets tonight! You mentioned that you live in California; any chance it’s San Diego 🙂 Hoping you live here and you may have some cooking demos for your fans.

  12. Is there a recipe for pumpkin butter that i missed?

    • Becki, there is no recipe for pumpkin butter here. You can use either homemade pumpkin butter or store-bought – it’s up to you!

  13. Where do I find pumpkin butter….this recipe sounds so easy and delicious. Any other suggestion if I can’t find the butter?

    • Pumpkin butter can be found at your local grocery store, but if you have difficulty trying to find it, you can substitute apple butter.

  14. This sounds devine….but how do you make the pumpkin butter??

  15. I am a fan of Brie, and love the covering. Should it be removed for this recipe?

  16. I´m a cheese lover and this recipe is just amazing! It´s just like fondue, but even better 🙂

  17. Hello! Could you let me know what (whether i should buy or make) the Pumpkin Butter in this recipe? I googled it, is it like peanut butter?

    Many thanks,

    Mills (in the UK!)

  18. That looks and sounds like such an amazing trip! I remember my overnight stay in Ney York earlier this year – it was poooouring down! But luckily my friend and I sought shelter in a sushi restaurant and an Irish pub, warm and cosy ^ ^
    That brie looks fantastic! I love pecans and wrapping the cheese seems like a genius idea 😀 Mmmm! x

  19. I wish we would have had more time together in NYC to go explore! Well, at least we live close 🙂 Seeing these pics makes me feel like the trip was such a whirlwind – so fast!

    And seeing this brie. OMG my #1 favorite appetizer is either baked brie or spinach and artichoke dip. You have no idea how badly I want this! This is the exact kind of thing I was hoping for at the restaurant that night! This! My dream food 🙂
