Perfect Low-Carb Recipes


Praline Pecan Brie

yield 8 servings prep time 15 minutes cook time 20 minutes


1 (8-ounce) wheel Brie cheese

½ cup raw pecan halves, chopped

¼ cup (½ stick) salted butter

2 tablespoons brown sugar substitute

1 tablespoon sugar-free maple syrup

Pinch of salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place the Brie on the prepared pan and gently score the
    top of the rind with a knife (don’t cut too deep). Bake for
    12 minutes, until the cheese is just starting to melt.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the praline pecan mixture: In a medium-size skillet over medium heat, toast the pecans for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring often. Remove the nuts from the skillet and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet still over medium heat, warm the butter, brown sugar substitute, and maple syrup, stirring until everything has melted and is well combined. Stir the pecans and pinch of salt into the mixture and remove the pan from the heat.
  5. Transfer the Brie to a serving plate and pour the praline pecan mixture over the cheese. Garnish with rosemary sprigs and serve immediately with the scoopers of your choice.
