Honeyed Persimmon and Brie

Brie baked in a cinnamon honey glaze and topped with pecans and our fresh persimmons make our honeyed persimmon and brie the perfect sweet and savory appetizer for any gathering. 

Sweet, buttery and crunchy is what you can expect in this delectable brie recipe. If you’ve been looking for a way to make brie appetizing to those who usually find the taste off-putting, then look no further!

Brie and fruit are a perfect match, add in honey and you got a match made in heaven.


Plus, pairing persimmons with honey is a no brainer. Ripe persimmons have a sweet, almost honey-like flavor.

Unripe persimmons may taste very bitter, so make sure your persimmons are ripe before chopping. They should be soft to the touch when pressure is gently applied.

We mixed our persimmons together with honey, cinnamon and pecans for a warm and sweet topping. The fruit, honey and nut mixture is baked on the brie so all the flavors melt together to create a rich and delicious gooey cheese.

  • ¼ cup pecans
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • Cutting board
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Bowl for honeyed persimmon mixture

Recipe Steps:

Prepare the honeyed persimmon mixture:

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the chopped persimmons, pecans, honey and cinnamon.

Prepare the brie:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place brie on a lined baking sheet.
  3. Spread the honeyed persimmon mixture on top of the brie, covering the sides as well.
  4. Much of the honey glaze will fall off the brie onto the parchment paper and that’s okay.

Bake the brie:

  1. Bake the brie for 10-12 minutes or until the brie is soft to a gentle touch.
  2. Allow the brie to sit for 5 minutes to allow the cheese to set just a bit.
  3. Using a spatula, move the brie from the baking pan to your serving platter.
  4. Garnish with crackers, bread and fruit for serving.
