  • 1 (16-ounce) round Brie
  • 1 (16-ounce) can whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons spiced rum*
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted


  1. Trim rind from top of Brie, leaving a 1/3-inch border on top. Place Brie on a baking sheet.
  2. Stir together cranberry sauce and next 3 ingredients; spread mixture evenly over top of Brie. Sprinkle evenly with pecans.
  3. Bake Brie at 500° for 5 minutes. Serve with assorted crackers and apple and pear slices.
  4. *2 tablespoons orange juice may be substituted for spiced rum.

If you can't find a 16-ounce round of Brie, you can use a slightly larger round or  2 (8-ounce) rounds.  If you want a little bit less of the cranberry sauce mixture, use a 14-ounce can and it will be plenty.
