4-Ingredient Baked Real California Brie Recipe


  • Real California Milk Brie Cheese (wedge or wheel – both work)
  • honey
  • cranberries
  • chopped pecans or walnuts


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Carefully remove the top rind of brie.

Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Generously cover brie with honey and place in oven for 6 to 10 minutes or until warm throughout.

Carefully remove brie from oven and top with cranberries and chopped nuts.

Serve immediately with bread or crackers.

Keep the bottom and side rinds on the cheese to prevent it from falling apart. (The rind on brie is edible!)

Parchment paper will help prevent the cheese or honey from sticking to the pan.

Go ahead and prepare your serving platter and sides (bread, crackers, fruit, etc.) while brie is warming.

Honey may melt off and make a mess – be very careful when you remove it from the oven.

The amount of toppings depend on how much brie you have – get more than enough so it’s covered.

Carefully transfer brie from baking sheet to serving dish and serve warm.

This isn’t a dish you can make ahead of time – it’s best fresh from the oven. Just remind guests it’s HOT!
