It should be no surprise to anyone that I have a love for Kahlua. Coffee flavored liquor. Yes, please. Well, when a friend of mine introduced me to Kahula and brie together, my life has been forever changed. This simple four ingredient recipe delivers with this baked Kahlua Pecan Brie. A perfect appetizer or dessert when served with apple slices.
The base of this is the brie. I normally can get a 5 inch brie round at any grocery store. Remove the rind off the top of the cheese. Mix Kahlua and brown sugar together to form a thick syrup.
Chop and toast pecans. Now, you have all the ingredients ready. Time to get the party started. Place the round in an oven safe dish. I use a pie pan. Top the brie with the chopped and toasted pecans. Pour the Kahlua and brown sugar over top of the pecans.
Then put the brie in the oven and wait for the magic to happen. It will get ooey-gooey over the next few minutes. Be careful so it does not get to soft and become a big solid plate of melted cheese. Not that I have ever forgotten about the brie in the oven in order to know this will happen. Then when it is just soft enough, pull it out.
Now, I serve it with apple and pear slices, but this would be good on crackers or butter cookies. It would be wonderful smeared on some melba toast too.
The next time you need an easy appetizer but don’t have the time to make something elaborate, impress your friends with this fancy baked Kahlua pecan brie.
