Good Eats | Apple Butter + Pecan Baked Brie

Ready for the easiest appetizer that is totally Pinterest-worthy?? This baked brie recipe is one of those go-to apps that everyone will love and I ALWAYS keep the ingredients on hand to whip up in a jiffy just in case someone stops by. It’s been one of my treasured triumphs for years and I love that you can totally change a few ingredients and make something truly tasty.

I usually opt for the Apple Butter + Pecan variety, but here are a few more choices that are really good as well:

+ Cranberry + Pistachios [amazing idea for Thanksgiving]

+ Fig Jam + Apples + Honey

+ Blueberries + Balsamic Reduction + Caramelized Bacon

+ Garlic + Prosciutto + Honey

Apple Butter + Pecan Baked Brie Recipe


  • 1 Sheet of Puff Pastry [OR Pillsbury Crescent Roll Dough]
  • 1 8 oz. Round Wheel Brie Cheese [my favorite brands are President or Ile de France]
  • 1/2 cup of Apple Butter
  • 1/4 cup of Pecan Pieces
  • 1 Egg


  1. Take puff pastry out of container and lay on flat surface [if using Crescent Rolls instead of Dough, pinch seams together]
  2. Place round brie wheel in center of dough and then top with apple butter and pecan pieces
  3. Wrap the dough completely around the cheese and create a circle of dough, making sure to cover all parts of the cheese with the dough
  4. Whisk egg in small bowl and then brush all over to coat completely
  5. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and then place dough on top
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes and then serve with your favorite crackers
