  1. With a sharp knife, cut the rind off the top of the cheese. Cover with chopped nuts, pressing them gently into the cheese. Spoon the cranberry sauce uniformly over the top to cover, and sprinkle with more chopped nuts.
  2. Place the cheese on a microwave-safe soup plate and microwave at medium-high power for about 3 minutes.
  3. Garnish with pecan halves and serve immediately with bread and crackers and a spoon for spreading.

Delicious! I used Brie cheese and made sure to get cranberry sauce with the whole cranberries in it. 3 minutes was TOO long for heating the cheese 1 1/2-2 minutes would have been better. Mine melted (since it was in the microwave 2:40) and didn't stay in a circle like in the picture, but it was still delicious. Also, if you want it to look like the picture, you will need more than 1/2 cup of pecans.


Surprising good turn out. Had wheel of Brie, happended to have Pecans which I crushed and toasted. Had and a bottle of a Trader Joes Sweet Chile Sauce. OMG not only was I surprised, but guests were totally impressed. Cut top off wheel, baked in foil @ 350 for 20 min, just enough to melt/soften, pulled & transferred to ceramic plate (Quiche). Toasted crushed pecans (zip lock bag) and placed "into" melted Brie. Simply drizzed TJ Sweet Chile sauce over pecans and placed back into covection oven for 10 min.Really, this was a pull together on hand items and folks loved it. Preheating the Brie w/out top skin, then adding crushed, toasted pecans and drizzling chile sauce and returning to oven; fab!
