baked brie.

Baked Brie from Tamara:

1 large wheel of brie (Costco size - 16 ounce)
1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped pecans, depending on preference
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup pure maple syrup

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Bake brie wheel (leave rind on) for about 5 to 7 minutes, until soft. If you don't like the rind an option is to scrape it off just the top before baking but make sure to leave it on the sides to keep the shape in tact.
3. While brie is baking, mix together pecans, brown sugar and maple syrup. Pour on top of baked brie and return to oven for an additional 5-7 minutes or until syrup mixture is bubbly and pecans are toasted.

Serve with crackers, baguette slices, apples, pears, gingersnaps…

**option - If you want to use a smaller brie wheel, just halve or reduce syrup/brown sugar mixture.
