The flavor comes from the powdery mold rind, which some folks consider to be the best part. Others balk at the idea of eating mold. But it is actually good for you and tastes mild and buttery. Try it! You may like it.

Recipe variations:

  • Heavy cream: Instead of double cream, you can use heavy cream.

  • Other nuts: If you do not have any pecans or do not like them, feel free to use walnuts, almonds, or whatever nut you like instead.

  • Add fruit: Why not toss in some dried cranberries, raisins, or blueberries before baking?

  • Brown sugar: Sprinkle extra brown sugar on top of the mixture before baking for a caramelized crust.

  • Brie bites: Turn these into little tarts by using phyllo cups and spooning two tablespoons of the cooked brie into the cups before baking in a muffin pan. Only bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Because these are small, they will cook faster.

  • No brie: If you cannot find brie, try goat or camembert cheese instead.

  • Heat it up: Those who like spicy food would appreciate a pinch of red pepper flakes mixed in.

Frequently asked questions

Should I take the rind off the brie before baking?

Although you may not like eating the rind, it is best to leave it on when baking it to help it hold its shape. In this recipe where you are using a skillet with sides, it should be okay without the rind because the sides of the pan will keep it together. The rind is actually an edible form of mold. Some people remove it after baking and use it for dipping.

Are you supposed to eat brie cheese cold or warm?

With this recipe, because you are using it for dipping, it is best served warm. It would be too hard to dip anything in cold brie and it is not very easy to spread it either. But if you are just cutting it into slices for a sandwich, cold is best. In fact, the best way to eat it in France is to have a bite of cold brie and then a bite of bread.

Why is my baked brie rubbery?

It could be that you overbaked or overcooked it. It will reharden and turn dry if you cook it too long. One way to help make sure it cooks properly is to score or remove the top of the rind. Also, you can use a thicker pan or lower the temperature. But the best thing to remember is to not overcook it.

What are the nutrition facts in this recipe?

The nutrition facts for this dish vary depending on what you are using it with. Whatever you are dipping in it or putting it on will alter these numbers. But just for the pecan pie brie, you get 240 calories with 20 grams of fat including 9 grams of saturated fat.

How to store leftovers:

  • Store: Leftover pecan pie baked brie will harden as it cools. You can safely store it in an airtight container in the fridge for several days.

  • Freeze: Freezing is not recommended.

  • Reheat: To reheat, place the brie in a microwave-safe dish and heat for 30 seconds at a time until it is melted.

Recipe tips:

  • Make sure you do not overcook your brie. It will turn hard and rubbery.

  • If you are making the second recipe, you can use puff pastry instead of crust.

  • To save time, just use praline sauce instead of making your own.

  • Use a sturdy chip or crackers for dipping. A thin one will just snap off instead of picking up.

  • Once your baked brie dip has set out for a while, it will start to harden. If this happens, just heat it in the microwave for a few seconds and stir.

  • You can use honey instead of maple syrup if you like.

  • To get the best brie, you want to get one that is no more than one inch thick, and the outside should be firm while the middle is springy.

  • Underripe brie will not continue to ripen when you get it home so make sure you get one that is not too hard.
