Baked Brie with Jam Recipe

Tom Roemer from Colorado Springs, Colorado shared this 8 serving, 20-minute appetizer.


  • 1 round (8 ounces) Brie cheese
  • 1/2 cup mixed berry jam
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • Assorted crackers


Step 1: Preheat oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F. It’s best to have your brie out before baking.

Step 2: Add toppings

Place your cheese in a 9-in. pie plate and top with jam and almonds.

Step 3: Bake

Bake until the cheese is softened, about 15-20 minutes.

Step 4: Serve

Plain crackers are the perfect vehicle for brie since they don’t distract from the flavors of the cheese. Wait until the brie is at room temperature or slightly warm to serve. Never serve it chilled!

Can you make baked brie with puff pastry? 

Baked brie in puff pastry is nothing short of elegant. You’ll have to adjust the oven temperature and baking time to the recipe. But the main takeaway is that the jam (or preserves) are spread in the center of the puff pastry. The cheese is then placed over the jam.

Can you use other jams? 

Yep! The fun in cooking comes from experimenting. If you have a favorite fruit, start there! But if you’re short on inspiration, you can try some of our favorite spreads. A homemade jam goes a long way.

Can you use other nuts? 

Brie with almonds is an unbeatable combination. But other nuts work as well. Walnuts and pecans pair wonderfully with brie. You can even try pistachios on for size.

This lovely appetizer will make a great statement piece on any charcuterie board. Did you know you can eat the rind too? It’s savory, sweet and nutty. What more could you ask for? If you liked this dish, take a stab at some of our best brie recipes!
