Skinny Baked Brie

I’ve loved baked brie before I even tried it. I remember sitting in a restaurant and seeing a group of beautiful, older women gossiping over mimosas and brie, and I thought, “Maybe – if I’m lucky – someday that will be me and my best friends.” And while that still hasn’t happened, I do have hope. Then, of course, one can’t forget Bree Van de Kamp from Desperate Housewives. Something about her name makes me feel like she’s probably a master at baked brie. Well that, and the fact that she has a cook book/catering business. Look, all I know is that baked brie and crackers and sangria sorbet is pretty much a dream come true. Skinny Baked Brie with Pecan Drizzle by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.

Skinny Baked Brie

Yield: 8 Servings

Serving Size: 1/8 Recipe

Calories per serving: 105

Ingredients

  • Dough (¼ of following recipe, at 210 calories):
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour (700 calories)
  • 1/2 envelope pizza dough yeast
  • 1 packet Truvia
  • ¾ tablespoon salt
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (120 calories)
  • 2 tablespoons Joseph’s maltitol sweetener (or replace with olive oil/butter) (17.5 calories)
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon egg wash
  • Brie: 8 oz round of light brie (I used President, 490 calories)
  • Pecan Drizzle:
  • 1 tablespoon Truvia Baking Blend, “Brown Sugar” (26 calories)
  • 2 tablespoons Joseph’s syrup, or syrup of choice (17.5 calories)
  • Optional: 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons crushed pecans (95 calories)

Instructions

  1. Dough:
  2. Combine flour, yeast, Truvia and salt. Mix until combined.
  3. Add water, olive oil and Joseph's maltitol sweetener (or I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, "Lite") and combine using hands until dough forms into a ball.
  4. Place in bowl, wrap in plastic, and allow to sit (raise) for about 1 hour.
  5. After 1 hour, break dough into four pieces. Roll one piece flat using a rolling pin until it's large enough to cover round of brie.
  6. Brie:
  7. Place brie round on dough, wrap until completely covered with dough (like you're wrapping a gift). Place on baking sheet and cover so that dough is able to rise an additional 1/2 hour - hour.
  8. Preheat oven to 350F.
  9. If using egg wash, coat dough in about a tablespoon of egg-wash (1/2 tablespoon egg yolk + 1/2 tablespoon water).
  10. Bake about 22 - 27 minutes, or until dough is crisp and brie is soft. Remove and let cool for about 5 minutes.
  11. While baking, heat maple syrup, Truvia "Brown Sugar," and cinnamon (if using) over low heat in a miniature saucepan. Add pecans and stir until coated.
  12. Pour over brie once finished baking. Serve.
