Caramel Apple Baked Brie

I have been having a fascination with apples lately. First there was the apple cider cups, then caramel apple grapes, and then the delicious apple dessert braid. Now an apple recipe just in time for Thanksgiving that is perfect for entertaining, Caramel Apple Baked Brie.

My lovely chef-to-be sister (who is leaving us on Thanksgiving to go to Culinary Institute of America in Napa, California *jealous!*) came over and helped me with this recipe. She said this is NOT how you make caramel, but I said…. it’s easy and tasty so I’m doing it this way.

For the Baked Brie. I preheated the oven to 350 and let the Phyllo dough thaw for a little bit. Meanwhile, I made an egg wash (One egg and a little water) and set the Brie round on top of the Phyllo dough sheets. Bring a few sheets around at a time to cover the Brie and secure with a brush of the egg wash. I baked the Brie on cast iron, but you could line a baking sheet with parchment paper as well. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

For the Caramel Apple Sauce. Peel and dice one granny smith apple and saute with 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1 Tbls butter. Cook until apples are tender. Add in 2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 cup whipping cream, and 3/4 cup brown sugar. Cook about 5-10 minutes while stirring until sugars are less granulated.

Top your baked brie with the Caramel Apple Sauce and sprinkle with toasted pecans. Serve with apples, crackers, baguettes, anything you think would be good. This would be perfect for Thanksgiving!
