  • 8 oz. Brie cheese wheel or wedge
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and/or pecans, I like to use a mixture
  • 2 Tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • crackers apple slices, etc. for serving


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Place brie round on baking sheet. With a sharp knife, cut into the rind on the top of the brie about a quarter inch from the edge. Do not remove the rind.
  • Bake 15 minutes, or until cheese is soft and melted.
  • While the Brie is baking, heat a small saute pan over medium heat and add the nuts, toasting until they slightly brown and give off a nutty aroma.
  • Add the honey, salt, and cinnamon to the nuts and stir to coat.
  • Remove the hot brie from the oven and transfer to a serving plate. Carefully remove the top rind using a sharp knife to separate it, if needed.
  • Pour the honey nut mixture over the top of the Brie.
  • Serve with crackers, apple slices, etc.
  • Alternatively, you can cut the top rind off of the Brie and place in an oven or microwave safe dish. Then top with the nut mixture and microwave the Brie for 3-5 minutes or bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is warmed through, slightly bubbly and melty.
