Place brie in center of a glass baking dish. Arrange slices of brie around cheese and top figs with maple syrup.
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until figs begin to brown and brie is soft. Remove from the oven and serve immediately with crostini, crackers, or bread for spreading.
Notes // Tips
Nutrition information does not include crostini, crackers, or bread.
Choose a flavored crostini for an extra flavor boost. I choose a seed and dried cranberry oat crisp when photographing this recipe
Use leftover figs and brie on sandwiches, in salads, or on toast the next day.
Leftovers and Storage: Store in an airtight container for up to four days in the refrigerator. I don’t suggest keeping it longer because after the cheese is heated and then cooled it becomes very hard. Leftover toasted bread will stale quickly, so re-toast bread if you reheat the dish again.
Nutrition: Some dishes are light and fresh, and some are rich and indulgent. This baked brie appetizer is the latter and is meant to be enjoyed in small portions.
