Entertaining | Baked Brie with Pecans & Brown Sugar | Recipes
I love this appetizer. It is so simple, and so loved by everyone that tries it. When I first began catering (almost 6 years ago!) this was a staple on my menus.
TIP : I always buy brie at Costco for $5. At grocery stores it tends to be $10-15 for the same size.
1 wheel of brie, 16 oz.+
1 can of crescent rolls (unrolled and flat)
1/2 cup of pecan halves
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
For Serving :
On a greased baking sheet pan, piece together crescent rolls (6 of the 8) to form a circle or star shape. Place the brie in the center. Pile the pecans and brown sugar in the center of the brie. Pull edges of crescent rolls up around the brie using the remaining 2 pieces to fill in gapes. Don't worry about how it looks, the more rustic, the better!
Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees (or until browned and center is melted). Let sit for about 5 minutes, then serve with crackers and green grapes. This platter is all you need to start a party.
