Baked Brie with Fig Jam, Pecans, and Rosemary

Fig jam is so addictive, so consider this your warning. You will want to add it to everything on the snack board and everything else you’ll be eating over the next few days!

The pecans add a nice crunch to the base, and the added rosemary is one of those scents I love having around. I like to think of this as a fancy appetizer, and it’s a simple starter that looks way more complicated than it is.

What does Brie cheese taste like?

Brie cheese has a variety of flavors and textures. When you take a bite, you’ll first notice its creamy, buttery texture, which almost melts in your mouth.

The taste starts mild and fruity, with a hint of earthiness from the rind. As you savor it, the flavor evolves, revealing subtle notes of mushrooms and a slight nuttiness that adds depth.

The rind itself offers a contrasting tanginess and a bit of bitterness, which perfectly balances the rich, creamy interior.

Brie is a versatile cheese that pairs wonderfully with fruits, nuts, and various wines, making it a beloved choice for cheese lovers worldwide.

Do I need to remove the rind off the Brie cheese?

The short answer is no; you do not need to remove the rind of Brie cheese. The rind is completely edible and integral to the cheese’s flavor and texture.

The rind forms naturally during the cheese’s aging process, adding a subtle, earthy taste that complements the creamy interior. If you’re hesitant about the slightly firmer texture of the rind, consider trying a small piece along with the gooey center to experience the full range of flavors Brie has to offer.

Whether you eat the rind depends on preference, but many cheese enthusiasts agree that it enhances the overall Brie experience.

This Baked Brie with Fig Jam, Pecans, and Rosemary is the perfect party platter!

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet store-bought puff pastry, thawed according to package instructions
  • 1/2 cup fig jam
  • 4-5 fresh figs, sliced
  • 1 wheel of Brie cheese (about 8-10 ounces)
  • 1 egg (for egg wash)
  • 1 tablespoons honey, for drizzling
  • 2 tablespoons pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • Flaky sea salt, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry into a square or circle large enough to wrap the Brie completely.
  3. Unwrap the wheel of Brie. Place it in the center of the rolled-out puff pastry.
  4. Spread the fig jam on top of the Brie.
  5. Arrange half of the sliced fresh figs on top of the fig jam.
  6. Gently fold the puff pastry over the Brie, covering it completely. Pinch the pastry to seal it well.
  7. In a small bowl, beat the egg. Brush the top and sides of the puff pastry with the egg wash.
  8. Transfer the prepared Brie onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the Brie is melted and gooey.
  9. After baking, remove the Baked Brie from the oven. Sprinkle the chopped pecans, finely chopped rosemary, and a pinch of flaky sea salt over the top of the warm Brie.
  10. Drizzle honey over the warm Baked Brie.
  11. Place the Baked Brie on a serving platter. Garnish with additional fresh fig slices. Serve warm with crackers, bread, or sliced fruit.
