Thanks to the folks at EnvyTM & Publix for sponsoring this post Baked Brie Recipe with Apples.
Julie recently represented Staying Close to Home at a Publix tasting that featured our recipe for a very special baked brie recipe. I mean if you have never had baked brie appetizer, you are missing out of something very special.
Not only is it extremely creamy but it is topped with an apple and nut topping that when piled onto a cracker it tasted like apple pie on a cracker. At least that was the feedback Julie gave me from the event.
I know, let’s get to the nitty-gritty and get to the recipe for baked brie.
If you are entertaining, feel free to make the topping earlier in the day and just heat it up when you are preheating the oven. Otherwise, this baked brie appetizer recipe does come together very quickly and easily.
Prepare your apple mixture as you preheat the oven. You can slice or dice your apples as we did in these pictures.
I could just eat this mixture and skip the brie, but why would anyone skip the baked brie??
I initially made this dish in a separate pie plate and then transferred it to my serving tray. In attempts to eliminate one more dish to clean, I used a heatproof plate.
Well, the result is a platter filled with maple syrup covered crackers.
Either way, simply cut your 8 inch round of brie in half lengthwise. Place the bottom half onto your baking dish.
Can I eat the Rind of the Baked Brie?
Yes, you can eat the rind of Camembert or Brie which gives these cheeses their characteristic bloomy rind. The rind is totally edible and adds texture and flavor to the cheese.
Top with half of the cooked apple mixture.
Place the top of the brie on top of the apple mixture.
Top the brie with the remainder of the cooked apple mixture.
Top with the heated maple syrup and bake.
The result is this gooey warm delicious fall appetizer.

What are EnvyTM Apples?
They have naturally higher citric acid content which prevents the ‘browning’ enzyme from activating. This means they are VERY slow to brown, which makes them ideal for kid’s lunches, picnics, salads, charcuterie boards, and party platters – they will look great for hours!
EnvyTM is cross between Braeburn and Royal Gala. They are non-GMO and are grown naturally in Washington State and New Zealand.
