Kahlua-Pecan-Brown Sugar Baked Brie

1 whole wheel of Brie (Costco sells a 19 ounce Brie wheel which is perfect for this recipe)
1 cup Kahlua
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup chopped pecans (I left mine whole because I like they way they look)
Accompaniment: crackers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Start by carefully slicing the rind off the top of the Brie wheel, but do not remove completely.  Bake for 15 minutes.  When the Brie is done baking, the top can be easily removed to expose the creamy cheese.

While the Brie is baking, in a medium saucepan, bring Kahlua and brown sugar to a boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until a syrupy consistency is made.  Throw the pecans in for 2 minutes at the end to warm them through and completely cover with the sauce.

Remove the Brie from the oven (removing top rind) and pour Kahlua sauce over the Brie.  

Serve warm with crackers.

Baklava Cups


1/2 cup pistachios

1/2 cup walnuts

1/2 cup almonds

1 lemon, zested

1/4 cup, plus 3 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 boxes mini filo shells, 15 shells each

1/2 cup water 1/4 cup honey

Special equipment: 2 (12-cup) mini cupcake pans, food processor


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Arrange the pistachios, walnuts, and almonds on a baking sheet and toast in the oven until golden and fragrant, about 8 minutes. Let nuts cool slightly and add to a food processor along with the lemon zest, 3 tablespoons of sugar, butter, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla and pulse to combine.

Place mini fillo shells in wells of 2 mini cupcake pans. Add 1 teaspoon of the nut mixture into each shell. Bake until filling is hot, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat add the water, 1/4 cup sugar and honey and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until reduced and slightly thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Pour 1 teaspoon syrup into each cup and allow it to soak in, then repeat with another teaspoon. Refrigerate at least 5 hours, or overnight.
