Maple Walnut Brie

When I'm cooking for guests, I tend to indulge.  This appetizer is the perfect example of a fantastic fall treat.  The gooey melted brie with the warm brown sugar/maple syrup glaze makes for a great combination!  With Thanksgiving approaching, this would make the perfect pre-feast appetizer!

Maple Walnut Brie
Serves 8-10
  • 1 16 oz. wheel of Brie cheese
  • 6 T brown sugar
  • 6 T pure maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries (optional)
  • Serve With: crackers, apple slices, ginger snaps, etc.
  1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking dish with parchment paper
  2. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, combine the brown sugar and maple syrup
  3. Allow the mixture to simmer until the sugar is dissolved; about 3-4 minutes
  4. Add the walnuts to the mixture
  5. Position the cheese in the middle of the baking dish and pour the brown sugar mixture atop the cheese
  6. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese has softened
  7. Serve as desired
