A Late Autumn Snack with That Cheese Plate

People who like cheese are the best people, am I right? That's why we're so thrilled to have Marissa, founder of That Cheese Plate, take over the blog today to share a swoon-worthy baked brie.

Marissa here with That Cheese Plate, bringing you the perfect cheesy snack for a cool autumn day. The leaves are just past peak in Connecticut, providing the perfect backdrop for our relaxing Sunday afternoon. I spend most of my time in Brooklyn, so it's always refreshing to get out of the city to chill out in the woods.

At That Cheese Plate, we love any excuse to make baked brie. Brie is quite the versatile cheese - we like the really stinky french brie. With endless possibilities of toppings, you can make a wide range of savory and sweet baked bries. We decided to make Baked Brie with Spiced Pecans and a Blackberry Compote, accompanied by Mulled Wine.

Baked Brie with Spiced Pecans and Blackberry Compote

Mulled Wine

These recipes were so easy and tasted amazing. I had to resist from taking down the whole wheel of brie on my own. Check out the recipes below!



  • 1 Wheel of Brie
  • 1 Package of Raincoast Crisps 

For the Spiced Pecans (Recipe adapted from Taste of Home):

  • 1 bag of pecans
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • For the Blackberry Compote:
  • 1 container of blackberries
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of water



1) Preheat oven to 300F. In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon and salt. In a large bowl, lightly beat egg white. Add pecans, stir until coated.

2) Spread pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. 
3) Meanwhile, take brie out of packaging and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Place in oven and let bake for 15 minutes, or until brie is very soft to the touch. 
4) While the pecans and brie are baking, mix water, honey and blackberries in a small saucepan on medium-high heat. Set aside 5 fresh blackberries for later. The berries will start to bubble, keep mixing until you have a jam like consistency. Drain sauce to remove seeds and gently mix in the fresh blackberries.

5) Once the brie and pecans are done, take out of the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Place brie on a serving platter and drizzle with blackberry compote. Top with pecans and surround with crackers.
