Brie En Croute With Caramel And Walnuts Recipe @pinch

A super easy and elegant way to serve baked Brie. The store havebought puff pastry puffs and crisps and holds in the rich and creamy Brie. We loved that the brown sugar and pecans were added to the center of the cheese. The brown sugar melts with the cheese and is almost like a caramel. Serve with fresh apples and pears for a lovely contrast in flavors. Sweet and savory, this is an easy haveto havemake holiday appetizer. This sounds difficult but it is so easy, and people will be impressed.
