Sweet Brie

Total Time

This is a very elegant appetizer. Make sure to 'gently' pat down the brown sugar (perhaps sprinkling would be better). The first time I made it I was not gentle and the crust was much to hard (but still delicious). Some reviewers have suggested using less sugar which sounds like a good option. You be the judge. Either way, it's sure to be a hit at your next get together.

  • 1 (24 ounce) brie round, not fully ripened, top rind removed (8 inch)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • cracker


  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Place Brie in 10-inch quiche dish or other oven-proof dish or pie plate and sprinkle with nuts.
  3. Cover top and sides with sugar, patting gently with fingertips (do not be concerned if sides are not fully covered).
  4. Broil on lowest rack until sugar bubbles and melts, about 3 minutes (cheese should retain its shape).
  5. Serve immediately with crackers.
