Cranberry Baked Brie With Pecans

Cranberry Baked Brie

This lighter holiday rendition of baked brie with cranberries and pecans will be an instant hit wherever you take it. Be prepared to be asked for the recipe. Serve it with apple slices or with whole-grain crackers to get some cheese in every bite.

Baked brie is a perfect holiday appetizer.  It presents beautifully and the gooey cheese is addictive!  This baked brie is enrobed in a crescent roll which gives it a nice crust.

You can use our simple homemade cranberry sauce as the topping for the brie – or stop by your local Safeway deli to pick up a prepared cranberry sauce.  It’s delicious!

Ingredients

  • 8 ounce can Signature SELECT™ Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls
  • 8 ounce Brie round
  • 1/4 cup Signature Farms® Pecan Halves, toasted
  • 4 tablespoons Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce – either canned or homemade
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Canola oil cooking spray, to toast pecans

How to Make Baked Brie With Cranberry and Pecans

Roughly chop pecan halves and add them to a nonstick skillet prepared with cooking spray to toast (5-10 minutes).

 

Preheat oven to 375°. Coat a baking dish slightly larger than the size of the brie round with canola cooking spray (a 9-inch round or square baking pan will work if needed).

 

Open the can of crescent rolls and unroll the dough into a rectangle on a piece of wax paper. Trim about 4-inches off of one of the short edges (about 2 crescent roll’s worth of dough) and save for another time. Crimp the remaining crescent roll edges closed to make one complete square of dough.

 

Using a serrated knife, trim the white edge off one end of the brie round and sprinkle the pepper evenly over this end and on top with the pecan pieces. Press down on the pecans gently so they stay in place.

 

Place the brie round, pecan side down, onto the center of the dough and wrap the dough up and around the brie to completely cover it. Crimp the top edges of the dough with your hands to seal everything in. Place the brie round, pecan side up, onto your prepared baking dish.

 

Bake about 20 minutes or until the dough is nicely browned and the brie is starting to ooze. Place the brie on a serving dish and spread cranberry sauce evenly over the top. Serve with crackers (we recommend whole wheat crackers)!
