Baked Brie w/ Candied Pecans

Ok lets be realistic, cooking for Thanksgiving is A LOT of work- loads actually, so why not cut corners when you can(your guests will have no idea)?!? The above mentioned corner cutting will not compromise taste- I promise!

I would like to share 2 of my most favorite apps ever! They are no fail- simple- tasty- and perfect for the holidays!

Baked Brie w/ Candied Pecans(my recipe title)

1 Round Brie(any kind will do, wholefoods always has a great selection)
1/2 cup Brown Sugar(add more if you like)
1/2 cup of chopped pecans
1 box of fresh raspberries
2 tart apples( I like granny smith)
1 Box of assorted crackers

Heat oven to 355 degrees. Remove the thin white film off the top of the brie with a knife and place brie in a pretty baking dish(no need to transfer once heated as who needs more dirty dishes on turkey day). Spread the brown sugar and pecans over the top of the brie- then softly place fresh raspberries on as well. Bake approx 30 minutes, or until center is a gooey yummy mess.

While the brie is baking, cut the apples into thin slices(but not too soon, as the apples will turn brown, so shortly before its ready).

When the brie is done, remove and surround with apples and crackers!

Soooo beyond simple- and ridiculously delish! So yummy, my camera can never catch pics fast enough, otherwise this mouthwatering app would have a pic!

Will share my famous spinach balls recipe tomorrow, as this momma needs some sleep! Pin It
