Autumn Baked Brie Recipe

This fun take on a cheese appetizer has all the flavor elements of a comforting Thanksgiving dish: apples, cinnamon, and cranberries. With a total prep and cooking time of 25 minutes, you can easily whip this up even with last-minute guests or for when you need a little something extra special for dinner. Serve with thin crackers or toasted bread for the perfect cheesy autumn dish that everyone will love.


  • 1 wheel of brie
  • 1 Medium Apple
  • 1/4 cup of crushed pecans (or walnuts)
  • 1/4 cup of dried cranberries
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Favorite crackers or bread for serving
  • Soaked grilling wood plank


  1. Preheat your grill to about 425°F. Prepare for indirect grilling.
  2. If you're using a plank, soak it while you prep the topping.
  3. Combine the apple, pecans, cranberries, cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer until the mixture thickens and the apples become soft.
  4. Place the cheese on the soaked plank, or a baking sheet with foil, then top the cheese with the hot apple mixture.
  5. Bake over indirect heat for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese starts to bulge in the middle and the sides are slightly golden.
  6. Serve hot, with your favorite bread, crisps, crackers or even slices of fruit. Don't forget a good drink too. Apple cider, or wine is best.
