The combination of the cherries, pecans, and fresh rosemary give this baked Brie a sweet, woodsy flavor that has been an enormous hit in my home for years. There is no culinary reason to remove the white rind from the cheese; however, I find that when baking it with a crust, it makes it easier for guests to cut through and also becomes easier to spread. ~Enjoy!

Course: Appetizer
Servings: 10
Author: Carrie's Experimental Kitchen
Ingredients
  • 1 19- oz . Wheel of Brie
  • 1/2 c . Dried Cherries
  • 1/4 c . Whole Pecans
  • 1/4 c . Honey
  • 1 tsp . Fresh Rosemary, chopped
  • 1 pkg. Refrigerated Crescent Roll Dough
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Place whole pecans on a baking sheet, and bake for approximately 5 minutes until lightly toasted. Remove from the oven, cool, and finely chop.
  3. While pecans are in the oven, soften cherries in warm water. Drain the water, chop, then set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the cherries, pecans, honey, and rosemary until it forms a paste.
  5. Using a small knife, scrape off the white coating on all sides of the Brie, then add the cherry mixture on top.
  6. Open the crescent roll dough, and using a rolling pin, roll it out so that it will cover the entire Brie. (It’s okay if you have to piece it together.)
  7. Cover Brie with the dough, and place on a baking sheet with the seam side down.
  8. Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
  9. Remove from the oven, and let cool 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve with crackers.

    Awesome for you to do this. It is so grand for people to be sharing recipes and also the interactions online with each other at this time of year. This looks like it could be one of my one or two new recipes I try for every Thanksgiving dinner. This and the sweet potato cornbread I found on Google+ from a contact. Now here you come with the other, sweet!
