Baked Brie w/ Maple & Pecans

IMG_5106

It has been almost a month since my last post and I have missed you all SO MUCH!!!!

Why is it when you get off track with your normal routine, it seems like such an undertaking to get everything back on track?

The last 2 months have been…insane (does that sound too dramatic?). Yes, insane. To the point that my home, diet and exercise routines have completely taken a backseat. I’ve spent the last few days trying to get back on track but it makes me exhausted just thinking about it. One thing at a time I guess…1 workout, 1 blog post and a clean house this morning…better than nothing!

This baked brie is one of my all-time favorite appetizers. So savory! It is a hit at every dinner party and it would be great for your holiday parties too!

Baked Brie w/ Maple & Pecans
1 small wheel of Brie
1/2 cup pecans
3 Tbsp brown sugar
3 Tbsp maple syrup
crackers or sliced baguette, for serving

1. Preheat oven for 350° F. Place cheese on a rimmed baking sheet; bake until softened, 15-20 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate; cool about 20 minutes.
2. While cheese cools, place nuts on a clean baking sheet; bake until toasted and fragrant, 7-10 minutes. Sprinkle nuts over cheese.
3. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and maple syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat; simmer until foamy, 1 to 2 minutes. Drizzle warm sauce over slightly cooled cheese and nuts; serve with crackers or baguette.
