How do you make Baked Lemon Brie?

Print off the full recipe below!

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place brie round on an ovenproof serving dish. I like to lay parchment paper down on a baking sheet.
  2. Slice the top of the brie round off, cutting inward to make a bowl. Remove the “lid.”
  3. Fill the bowl with the lemon curd and 1/2 cup of pistachios. Sprinkle with 1/2 the finely chopped fresh thyme or rosemary. Place the lid on top, pushing down. (It’s okay if a little bit falls to the side). Drizzle with honey (optional). Sprinkle with the remaining pistachios and chopped thyme.
  4. Bake until the cheese inside the rind is melted and bubbly.
  5. Serve hot with your favorite crackers or baguette bread slices.

Tips and substitutions:

  • Swap out the lemon curd for your favorite flavor of curd. You may want to try our Mango Orange Curd or Rhubarb Curd.
  • You can substitute the pistachios for chopped (toasted) walnuts, pecans, macadamias, or cashews.
  • If you don’t want to use curd, you can use any jam.
  • Use basil in place of thyme.
  • If you don’t like the dried lemon slices, you can omit from the recipe.
  • Leftovers are great in a lunch-wrap with chicken and brie.
  • Serve with sturdy crackers (firm), or slices of baguette bread.
