So yes, true confession time: I am totally one of those white girls who is into pumpkin flavored everything.
Trader Joe’s has a truly fabulous assortment this year btw if you can’t be bothered to bake a brie. I can personally vouch for the awesomeness of the pumpkin pop tarts and the pumpkin cranberry crisps.
But honestly? Baking a brie looks super fancy and like you tried really hard but it’s the laziest thing ever.
Pumpkin Baked Brie with Cinnamon Roll Waffles
1 wheel of brie
1 seamless tube of crescent rolls
1/2 cup toffee pecans
2 tubes of cinnamon rolls
3 apples, sliced
3 pears, sliced
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon honey
3 cardamon pods
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 egg, beaten
cinnamon sticks, cloves, cardamom pods, fresh sage for garnish (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350. Heat your waffle iron to medium. In a food processor, grind 1/4 cup of the pecans, the cardamom and the cloves. Mix the ground nuts and spices with the pumpkin. Mix the honey and the rest of the spices with the pumpkin. Unroll your seamless crescent roll. Put half the pumpkin mixture in the middle of the sheet. Place the brie on top of it. Put the other half of the pumpkin mixture on top of the brie. Carefully wrap the brie in the dough. Brush the egg was on the dough. Use the other half of the pecans to stud the top. Put in the oven for 20-30 minutes.
While the brie is baking, take out the cinnamon rolls. Put one roll in each of the four waffle compartments in your waffle maker. Press. Let cook for 2 minutes. Take the rolls out and keep repeating until you’ve cooked all the rolls.
Arrange on a plate. Done!
