Recipe: Baked Brie with Pecans
Wine Pairing: Chatuea Julien 2009 Private Reserve Merlot

  • 1 small wheel of Brie or Camembert (about 9 oz)
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces
  • 3 TB light-brown sugar
  • 3 TB pure maple syrup
  • crackers or sliced baguette, for serving

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cheese on a rimmed backing sheet, bake until softened, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate; cool about 20 minutes.

2. While cheese cools, place nuts on a clean baking sheet, bake until toasted and fragrant, 7 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle nuts over cheese.

3. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and maple syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat; simmer until foamy, 1 to 2 minutes. Drizzle warm sauce over slightly cooled cheese and nuts; serve with crackers or baguette.
