Praline-Topped Brie


I love just about every type of cheese that exists.  Brie is one of my favorites, but I love when it’s paired with something else.  This is an easy recipe for praline-topped brie which I recently made for a friend’s 50th birthday party. I’ll be sharing more details from the party on my blog this Friday.

This brie appetizer is easy to throw together and only uses 4 ingredients. It takes about 15 minutes to make from start to finish.  I served it with apple slices, but you can serve also serve it with  crackers or baguette-style French bread slices.   I had cut the recipe out of a magazine so I’m not 100 percent sure of the original source or else I would give credit where credit is due.

This praline-topped brie makes a great appetizer for a party or dinner.  You can also use sugared pecans on top of the brie.  I shared my friend  Anne’s recipe for them here.

    That looks great! I too am a big Brie fan…my baked bries never seem to look so pretty though. Is there a trick to keep it from melting all over the place? Maybe I heat it too long?

      I leave the rind on the brie which is edible. I do slice a little off the top though. I think that’s what keeps it from melting all over the place, but I could be wrong.

    That looks delicious!! I also love all cheeses Brie is also one of my favorites. I sometimes spread a spicy raspberry jam on top of the Brie then wrap it in phyllo dough and bake it. I will definitely try this recipe. Thanks Dawn!

      Ooh, your recipe sounds good too Jeanene. I’ll have to try that sometime. I love brie wrapped in phyllo or crescent dough too.

    Oh Yummy! Have you tried spreading butter on Brie then topping with brown sugar, putting in the microwave to heat the butter. Serve with Table Water Crackers….another tasty tidbit. Thanks for sharing Dawn. I will have to try this one.

    I like that this is simple, without wrapping it in the dough, like we usually see in recipes. I’m looking forward to making this for my next book club! Thanks!
