Total time - 1 hour
Prep time - 15 - 20 minutes
Servings - 4 - 6
1 wheel of Brie
Sprig of Rosemary
Maple Candied Nuts
2 tsp butter
¼ cup pure maple syrup
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
½ cup pecans
½ cup walnuts
¼ tsp salt
Yield - 1 cup of nuts
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Unwrap Brie cheese and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Set aside.
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in cinnamon, salt, and maple syrup. Add nuts. With a rubber spatula, mix nuts into maple syrup mixture until evenly coated.
On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread nuts, making sure they are separated. Work quickly, before the nuts have a chance to stick together.
Bake for about 10 minutes, until nuts are caramelized. Remove from oven and place sheet on a wire rack. Let stand until cooled and hardened—about 30 minutes.
When the nuts are removed from the oven, place the Brie in the oven and bake until soft—15-20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and place on serving platter. Allow Brie to cool for about 15 minutes.
Once the Brie and nuts have cooled, carefully spread an ample amount of blackberry jam on the top of the Brie, being careful not to press too hard into the cheese.
Top with desired amount of candied nuts, berries, and rosemary.
Serve with crackers, baguette, and remaining candied nuts and berries.
