Questions about Brie
Can you eat the skin on brie cheese? Yes, the rind is edible and adds to the flavor of the cheese. It also helps to keep the cheese from melting everywhere. I made and ate all the recipes below with the rind still on.
Can I cook Brie? Yes, absolutely! It is so creamy, melty, and delicious when cooked. I use a cast iron skillet and bake the Brie in the oven.
How do I store the recipe if I don’t eat it all? I keep it in the fridge for up to 2 days. Cover it with foil sprayed with oil so that the cheese doesn’t stick. But will there really be leftovers?!

1. Black Truffle Baked Brie
We are starting out with savory Baked Brie recipes. You can eat this for lunch, dinner, or a snack. Score the top of the rind and top with tomatoes, shallots, garlic, truffle oil, salt and pepper, and slices of black truffle. You can also pick up truffle salt if you can’t find truffles.
2. Brie in Puff Pastry
A savory Brie recipe, this time baked in puff pastry. The ingredients are puff pastry, brie cheese wheel, sauteed mushrooms, onions, smoked applewood sea salt, garlic, onion powder, and pepper. I placed the cheese wheel on the puff pastry, topped it with the savory ingredients, and then folded it up. I cut off a long thin piece of the puff pastry to save for the braid and then placed it over the top before cooking.
3. Baked Brie Platter
A savory and spicy baked brie that will leave you asking for more. In this recipe, I use both goat cheese and Brie. After scoring the Brie, I placed them in a dish, topped it with a spicy truffle hot sauce, and then baked it. Let the platter cool, and add your favorite savory ingredients: pickles, olives, artichokes, bread, and nuts.
4. Tomato and Habanero Pepper Jelly Brie
This savory-baked Brie hits the spot if you need a quick dinner idea. Take a Brie Cheese wheel and score the top. Then top this with tomatoes, Habanero Pepper Jelly from Kelly’s Jelly, olive oil, garlic lemon pepper, and then bake. It’s so creamy and flavorful.
5. Baked Brie with Tomato and Ricotta Pesto
This recipe is pinned on my Instagram for easy and quick access. But it is so good, I have to tell you about it here. I took a triangle-shaped piece of Brie and bought tomato ricotta pesto, tomatoes, artichokes, salt, and oil. Then bake it. Super delicious!
Sweet Brie Recipes
6. Pear Honey Brie
A sweet baked brie topped with pears, lavender-infused honey from Naturacentric, apricot jam, and pistachios. Before adding all these ingredients, score the top of the rind and then top it with all the ingredients. Bake for 15 minutes at 400. When serving guests, take it out of the oven when guests arrive so they can enjoy the gooey goodness. Serve with crackers or bread.
7. Brie Lollipops
Have you tried a cheese lollipop? No! These sweet brie treats are delicious and make quick yummy appetizers or snacks. I used Rosemary crackers, Brie cut into wedges, figs, honey, and mint for these lollies. Use a toothpick to secure the cheese. Be aware not to bite into the toothpick.
8. Brie Puff Pastry with Figs
This spread has all the sweet stuff! Start with a puff pastry on a baking sheet and bake. Then add the Brie Cheese Wheel. Next, add all the toppings: Naturacentric Mission fig honey, Kelly’s Jelly Oregon Tayberry Jelly, Mt Hope Farms Marionberry-Raspberry Fruit spread, some chopped pecans, and chopped dried figs. Lastly, drizzle some Durant Farm Orange-infused Olive oil. Not only is the treat delicious, but it is made with some of the best ingredients from the finest companies!
9. Candied Orange Peel Brie
Look no further you have found your top-notch dessert to show off at your next gathering! This Brie dessert is sure to please! I used candied orange peel, Naturacentric Sage & Comb Honey, Portland Salt Co Toast Salt, Orange infused olive oil and Walnuts.
How to cut and make a Brie Wheel
The easiest way to cut Brie is when you first take it out of the refrigerator. Brie becomes softer when left out, making it more challenging to cut.
Use a sharp knife and cut it like a pizza until you have 16 pieces. Pull the knife out the side instead of up, so it won’t stick. Once you have 16 pieces. Pull two pieces out and start laying the 14 pieces on their sides in a circle. See the picture below or watch the reel on my Instagram page here.
I hope you try one of these recipes. They are crowd-pleasers! And beyond delicious and comforting for the cold weather season.
