Raspberry Baked Brie
This Raspberry Baked Brie is sweet, savory, and perfect for entertaining during the holiday season. It makes an easy and impressive appetizer with minimal prep time!
Decorating the Christmas tree, wrapping presents, making cookies, parties, shopping, get-togethers, more wrapping (oh, the wrapping). It’s never ending, right?
That is the joy of the holiday season, friends! It’s busy and goes by in the blink of an eye, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Except maybe to slow down the time just a little.
I look forward to the hustle and bustle of the holiday season every year, except for the wrapping part. That, I can definitely do without. It often looks like a five-year-old wrapped gifts when I attempt it, so I just leave that all to the hubster, or stuff my gifts into pretty gift bags. I’m obsessed with those, no joke!
But the hubster and I have a pretty good system worked out though, as he doesn’t mind wrapping and I thoroughly hate it! So I assemble the gift, get it ready, write out the name tag, and then pass it over to the hubster to wrap. Not a bad deal, right?
When it comes to parties and get-togethers, it’s all me. I love thinking of the perfect appetizers or dishes to serve that capture the flavors of the season. And every year I challenge myself to make a new and unique dish that will a favorite of everyone.
So when I had the opportunity to try Gloria Ferrer Sparkling Wine, I knew this Raspberry Baked Brie would go along perfectly with it. If you’ve never heard of Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards before, then you’re in for a special treat. It’s Carneros’ original sparkling wine house, which was founded and owned by the Ferrer family of Spain.
And that’s why this Raspberry Baked Brie and Sonoma Brut sparkling wine from Gloria Ferrer make the perfect combination. This sparkling wine has a delicate pear and floral notes, with hints of almond. It makes a delicious complement to enjoy with this appetizer.
Like most of my recipes, this Raspberry Baked Brie is an effortless appetizer that’s ready in no time.

How to Make Raspberry Baked Brie
This is one of the few baked brie recipes without pastry. Baked brie appetizers often involve wrapping the cheese in puff pastry first. It’s too time consuming, in my opinion. Pass!
Here’s how to make this easy baked brie:
- To start, you’ll cut the rind off of the brie and place it into a baking pan. Pop the brie into the oven for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese starts to melt.
- When the brie is ready, top it with some raspberry jam, followed by some fresh raspberries.
- Serve the baked brie with some french bread or crackers and get ready to dive in.
The Raspberry Baked Brie is bursting with a savory flavor from the cheese, along with hints of sweetness from the raspberries. It will wow your taste buds and impress all of your holiday guests this season!
How Long to Bake Brie
This easy brie appetizer needs to bake for just 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
What to Serve with Baked Brie
This baked brie with raspberry jam pairs perfectly with almost any crunchy, carby side. A few options include:
- French bread slices
- Bagel chips
Can I Use Another Type of Jam?
You sure can! There are so many jam and fruit pairings that go well with baked brie. Strawberry, blackberry, apricot, you name it!
Tips for Making Baked Brie with Jam
- Cut the top rind off the brie before baking it. If you don’t, it’ll be impossible to cut off cleanly once the cheese comes out of the oven.
- Wait to add the berries until the brie comes out of the oven. You don’t want to cook them!
- This baked brie appetizer is best enjoyed immediately.

Those gift bags are the best! Plus, they’re easy to reuse.
Um, baked bried and wine? Hello, dinner! Looks fantastic, Gayle!
Yes! Gift bags all the way! 🙂
Baked brie is one of my favorite holiday appetizers. A family friend makes one with apricot preserves and it’s divine. I have to admit that I’m more of a raspberry fan than an apricot fan, so this might have to be on the appetizer table this year.
Baked brie is my favorite, too! I just can’t resist the gooey cheese. Thanks for the kind words, Erin!
Oh mah goooosh yes! Baked brie is one of my all-time fav holiday appetizers! Would you believe that I’m the only one in my family who likes it?? Weirdos. 😀 I seriously love this raspberry version! So pretty, Gayle. 😉
What?! I can’t believe no one else likes it in your family! My husband doesn’t like it either, so he’s also a weirdo! 🙂 Thanks for the brie love, Sarah!
Brie chesee us definately decadent, elegant holiday appetizer perfection! I looooove yours, Gayle! The raspberry addition is just spectacular! I could eat this whole wheel by myself!! Pinned!
P.s. I love Gloria Ferrer, one of my favorites to order at a nice dinner out. And you and the hubster’s system sounds perfect. Team work it out! 😉 cheers!
Thanks, Cheyanne! I think I did eat this all by myself, as my husband doesn’t like brie! And thanks for the wine love! This was my first time trying Gloria Ferrer, and I have to say that I’m hooked!
What a perfect holiday appetizer! This looks so good!
Thanks, Jessica! It’s delicious!
I am obsessed with brie! I love when it is warm and gooey like this! The raspberry twist is so fun and could’t be any easier!
Gooey cheese gets me EVERY time! 🙂 Thanks, Annie!
I love this appetizer! Brie is so good with berries!
Yes! It’s my favorite combination! 🙂
Love baked brie! This looks gorgeous! Can’t wait to try it!
I’ve been to the Gloria Ferrer winery — it’s about 30 minutes or so from my house. I love the wine, especially the pinot noir. 🙂 This baked brie looks so easy and would definitely be a huge hit! I’m all about easy (and cheesy) apps, so this is just perfect. And wrapping presents is the pits! Thank goodness for gift bags. 🙂
That is so neat, Marcie! I love visiting wineries. This is the first time that I’ve tried their wine, but definitely not the last! 🙂 Thanks for the kind words!
So funny! I am not a fan of wrapping presents either and usually leave that for my husband too 🙂 Taking care of the appetizers sounds like a great deal to me especially if this baked brie is involved. It looks gorgeous, Gayle! Love the pretty raspberries!
Ok good, I’m glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t like to wrap! 🙂 Thanks for the brie love, Kelly!
Hahha! Hubby and I are you guys in reverse! He hates to wrap and I love it! But I hate to shovel and he loves it! So it all works out in the end! 😉 I love everything about this post! Great wine…baked brie…raspberries…bread – Done. Thanks for sharing!
I hate to shovel too, and will only do it if absolutely necessary! 🙂 Luckily my husband loves it. Thanks for the kind words, Annie!
I am LOVING this! Such a gorgeous appetizer and raspberries are my favorite!!!Plus I love how simple it is to make! I was in need of a holiday appetizer for a christmas party this weekend! Thanks friend!!
I’m so glad you like it, Mariah! This is literally the easiest appetizer, and so good, too! 🙂
Just when I thought baked brie couldn’t get any better…you’ve made it better!
Gah, baked brie – the way to my heart!!! haha But seriously, it really is. And with those raspberries and some wine! Perfect!
Thank you, Ashley! Baked brie is my weakness, too!
I could seriously eat that entire raspberry baked brie by myself, no problem! Brie is my favorite, and this one looks beyond fabulous – especially when paired with wine! 🙂
Thank you, Rachel! Brie and wine make one dangerous combo! 🙂
LOL, I’m terrible at wrapping but I love to do it anyways! I hate the SHOPPING part! This brie… omg. Baked brie has got to be one of the best things in the world!! I love pairing it with something sweet and raspberry sounds just amazing! Yum!
I kinda hate the shopping part, too! Luckily, I’m almost done, but I don’t brave the mall on the weekends. Thanks for the brie love, Jess!
GORGEOUS! These look so good – and with my favorite fruit too! YUM!
Thank you, Aria! I love the pretty color, too!
Drooooolllllll – SO GOOD!!! Pinned :).
Thanks, Annie! 🙂
I love baked brie! You are so creative to use raspberries! And I’m a total loser at present wrapping – I use bags! 🙂
Thanks for the kind words, Rachelle! And hooray for gift bags! They really are a life saver for those of us (me) that look like a 5 year old wrapped presents! 🙂
Oh Gayle! Baked brie is most definitely my weakness. I can only serve it when there are about 20 people sharing it, otherwise I will eat the whole thing.
I love that you have put raspberries with yours – what a great idea.
Thanks, Dannii! I’m the same way as you. I have no willpower when it comes to baked brie! 🙂
Gayle, I’m all about the baked brie over the holidays!!!! I LOVE the raspberry jam and fresh raspberries on top! so festive and beautiful!
Your photos are gorgeous, Gayle. I’ve never had baked brie. It sounds like I’m missing out on something pretty great though.
Thanks, Jen! I think you would love baked brie, it’s SO good!
omggg is this real life???? looks soo amazing. this just gave me the perfect inspiration for my christmas party next weekend! delicious
Thanks, Beverley! I hope you love this if you try it!
This is so super gorgeous — what a perfect holiday appetizer! That bright raspberry color… so pretty!
Girl that cheese looks so good! Funny but I have never baked a whole brie before and now I am like why not??! It’s the best holiday appetizer and love the colorful touch of raspberries!
It’s SO easy, Ami! I think you would love it!
I seriously love the combination Gayle, looks gorgeous!
So my first job was gift-wrapping presents, so I had to learn pretty quickly how to do it right and those skills have served me well when Christmas time rolls around! When I’m in a hurry, gift bags are a lifesaver. 🙂 I’ve never made baked brie, but I am getting so hungry looking at this raspberry version! Yum!
I always admire the gift wrappers at the store because they do such a great job! Thanks for the kind words, Kristine!
I have a confession to make. I’ve never made eaten brie or baked it before. I’m thinking I will love it, but just haven’t gotten around to it. This version looks good. PS love that you don’t like wrapping. I do all of ours, but by the 4 gift I am done! 🙂
You would love brie, Cyndi! And it’s so easy to make! 🙂 I wish I liked wrapping but I seriously dread it!
Love baked cheese! This brie sounds delicious. I love the the addition of the raspberries! Looks really tasty, Gayle! 🙂
Coming back to review this! What a great recipe! So easy and everyone at the party LOVED it! I will be making this again!
Aww I’m SO glad you liked it, friend! Isn’t it the easiest recipe? Thanks for letting me know! 🙂
Dear Gayle, what a beautiful spread and pairing! xoxo, Catherine
Thanks for the kind words, Catherine!
Do I have to cut the top off of the brie?
Hi Marie! Yes, if there is a covering on the top, you can cut that off. As for the sides, it’s completely up to you. Hope this helps!
