This is a great dip for a large crowd to share. The contrast of flavors and textures is so exciting and satisfying. The warm, creamy cheese with sweet brown sugar and crunchy spiced pecans is an unbeatable combo. The flaky pastry crust holds everything together and adds an extra indulgent layer of buttery goodness to the dish.
Use my Smoky Spiced Pecans in this recipe.
Technique tip: If you don't have a rolling pin, try using a soup can to roll the pastry out.
Swap option: To make this gluten-free, omit the puffed pastry and bake the brie until warm, melted and delicious.
