A dear friend came over for a visit today and brought a luscious wee circle of Brie with her. This of course called for the use of my darling little Brie Baker, made by Wildly Delicious (stainless steel version shown above):
Any kind of cheese in my opinion is delightful (with the notable exception of course, of Kraft Singles, which with their plastic consistency would be better suited to be melted and formed into tarps for trucks – just saying) but on a cold winter day, nothing quite beats warm delicious baked brie.
Here’s How We Made It:
Directions below are for using about a 3 inch diameter or 100 g disc of brie – here is the one we used: http://www.castellocheese.com/en-ca/our-cheeses/castello-brie
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Take your brie out of the package, and prepare by slicing a very thin top layer off of brie, leaving sides and bottom covered with the skin
Place sliced side up in brie baker
- About 5 large slices of canned peaches (fresh would be better!) or enough to cover the top thickly
- Fresh Raspberries to taste, mashed up (we could have pureed together with peaches but thought the pop of red color on the peaches would look pretty!)
- Sprinkle of cinnamon (to your own taste – we used about 1/2 tsp)
- Crushed toasted pecans
Puree the peaches slightly in a Magic Bullet or small hand blender
Spoon the peach puree onto the top of the brie
Add the brown sugar
Spoon mashed raspberries on, adding cinnamon
Lastly, sprinkle on your roasted pecans
Place a baking sheet underneath the baker, and place in heated oven
Bake for 15 mins covered with the brie baker lid, then remove cover and bake for an additional 5-6 mins or until bubbling on top, and cheese is gooey when you test with a knife. Enjoy while warm.

This one can be enjoyed entirely by itself, or with crackers and a nice glass of chilled white wine (or whatever tickles your fancy!)
