How to Bake Brie
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Unwrap the brie and place it seam side down on the baking sheet.
Sprinkle with rosemary, and top with almonds, cherries, and honey.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is soft to the touch.
Serve with crackers.
Baked brie can be reheated in an oven or air fryer at 350 until soft but is best served immediately.
- Chop the cherries if you prefer smaller pieces.
- Brie is best served warm.
- To make sure the brie bakes evenly, I recommend leaving it on the counter for an hour before baking.
- You can also use this recipe with other types of soft cheese, like Camembert.
- Let the wheel of baked brie sit for 5 minutes before serving.
Do you keep the rind on brie when baking?
I recommend keeping the rind on brie when baking so you can place all the toppings on it! It’s edible, don’t worry.
Can I bake brie in the microwave?
Yes, you can soften brie in the microwave as well if you’re in a pinch! I recommend placing it in a microwave-safe bowl and microwaving it in 60-second increments, as each microwave is different.
