Cranberry Pecan Baked Brie Charcuterie Recipe

Here in the Fraser Valley we love any opportunity to show off the abundance of local goodness our farmers and producers create and there’s no better way to do this than through a locally sourced charcuterie board for holiday entertaining. Offering up a feast of the Valley’s bounty to your family and friends is a great way to share in appreciation of each others company. For this board we used local products wherever we could and highlighted the deliciousness that is The Farm House Natural Cheeses.

A combination of Lepp Farm Market meats, locally grown produce and fruit, and The Farm House cheddar curds and La Florette goats’ cheese will all impress your guests. But the true star of this board is The Farm House brie baked and finished with a cranberry pecan topping we adapted from this wonderful Damn Delicious recipe.

The Farm House Natural Cheeses is open Monday to Saturday from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM and offers a wide range of and cow cheeses as well as other dairy products. In the on-farm cheese shop you can sample and purchase all the different varieties of cheeses to find the perfect one for your board! You can also find their cheese available at Whole Foods, The Local Harvest, Lepp Farm Market, and Lee’s Market, just to name a few!

Cranberry Pecan Baked Brie


  • 18oz wheel of The Farm House Natural Cheeses brie cheese (goat or cows milk, whichever you prefer!)

  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, packed

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed

  • 2 tablespoons local honey, we recommend Campbell’s Gold

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon Farm House grass-fed butter

  • 1/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • Pinch of nutmeg

  • Zest of 1 orange

  • 1/2 cup of pecans, chopped

  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries, check out Cranberries…Naturally in Fort Langley to pick some up!

For the board we recommend:

  • The Farm House Natural Cheeses Cheddar Curds

  • The Farm House Natural Cheeses La Florette Goats Cheese

  • Lepp Farm Market Cervelat Salami

  • Lepp Farm Market Dried Wine Chorizo

  • The Polly Fox Gluten Free Crackers

  • Stuffed olives, found at your favourite local deli or grocer

  • Local produce for accompaniment: we used grapes, but based on what’s in season we also recommend figs, pomegranate, or dried fruits! Stop by The Local Harvest for more ideas!


1. Preheat oven to 350° F

2. Place brie on a rimmed baking sheet or a 5-inch cast iron skillet and sprinkle with the 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Place into oven and bake until softened, about 12-15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.


3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and orange zest and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture starts to foam (1-2 minutes). Then, add the cranberries and pecans.


4. Stir the mixture together and pour it over the warm brie. Serve immediately with the rest of your charcuterie board!
