Baked Brie Recipe for Chardonnay Pairing

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)

By

Ok, Brie cheese pairs so well with such an assortment of varietals that it is definitely worth having at least one good baked Brie recipe up your sleeve! Consider pairing Brie with Champagne, Chardonnay, Cote-Rotie, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 17 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 Round of Brie cheese
  • 1/4 cup of pecans
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tube of crescent rolls (premade)
  • 1 egg

Preparation:

First, flatten out the crescent roll dough on a cookie sheet and gently connect the seams by rolling the dough out. Next, spread the brown sugar in the middle of the dough (do not spread the sugar wider than the width of the cheese round) and sprinkle the pecans onto the sugar. Now, place the Brie on top of the sugar and pecan mixture. Then, carefully fold the dough around the entire Brie round. When the Brie is totally enclosed, flatten out the bottom side that will sit on the cookie sheet. Finally, gently flip the Brie so that the sugar/pecan mixture is facing up (beneath the dough) and place it on the cookie sheet. Lastly, beat the egg and brush it on the surface of the dough to create a glazed finish. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until the dough is golden brown and the cheese is melting (may need a toothpick poke to verify). Enjoy!!
