Ingredients for a Fall Baked Brie Charcuterie Board

Fall calls for fresh and rich ingredients – think creamy cheeses, garden fresh vegetables, apples, salty nuts, and warm spices. This fall pumpkin baked brie charcuterie board is full of some of our favorite fall ingredients all centered around the main event – a pumpkin-shape based brie. The list below shows exactly what we used to create this board, but there are many ways to adjust this board to suit your preferences.

  • Brie: A creamy and mild French cheese with a soft, edible rind. Choose a medium to high quality for a smooth and delicious texture.
  • Phyllo Dough: Thin, delicate pastry sheets that add a crispy and flaky texture to your baked brie.
  • Pumpkin Butter: A sweet and spiced spread made from cooked and pureed pumpkin, perfect for adding autumn flavor. See some options of different spreads.
  • Grapes: Juicy and sweet, grapes provide a refreshing contrast to the richness of cheese and charcuterie.
  • Bread: Sliced or baguette, bread serves as a hearty vehicle for your baked brie and other toppings.
  • Prosciutto: Thinly sliced, dry-cured ham that offers a salty and savory component to your charcuterie board.
  • Craisins: Dried cranberries that add a sweet and tangy burst of flavor.
  • Crackers: A crunchy and neutral canvas to pair with cheese and spreads.
  • Pumpkin Seeds: Roasted seeds with a nutty flavor, ideal for adding a seasonal touch to your board.
  • Nuts: Assorted nuts like almonds, walnuts, or pecans for a delightful crunch and earthy taste.
  • Chocolate: A sweet treat for a touch of decadence on your charcuterie board, balancing savory and sweet flavors.

Garnish: Mini-pumpkin and sage leaves

How to Make a Baked Brie Pumpkin

The centerpiece of this charcuterie board is a baked brie pumpkin. Baked brie is SO EASY to make and is really impressive as the center of your board.

To make your baked brie pumpkin, you need 3 ingredients and there are some optional ingredients to make the baked brie pumpkin even better.

  • Round of Brie Cheese
  • Phyllo Dough
  • Maple Pumpkin Butter

Additional Ingredients:

  • Sage Leaves for garnish
  • 1 Egg

Start by thawing your Phyllo Dough for about 20 minutes. Then place some apple butter in the center of the dough. You can also use other jams and jellys but we were going for a fall theme.

Use Apple or pumpkin butter in the center of the dough for your baked brie pumpkin

Place your brie in the center of the dough on top of the apple butter. Cut the corners off the dough and fold up the dough around the brie. Press the edges together and flip over the dough. Using twine for baking, tie 3 pieces around the Phyllo Dough to form the ridges of the pumpkin.

Optional – coat the dough in an egg wash with an egg and water mixture. This adds a bit more color to your finished pumpkin.

Bake the Dough on parchment paper at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.

Place the brie in the center of the Phyllo Dough

Let the pumpkin baked brie cool for a few minutes then remove the string from around the pumpkin. Using sage, create the pumpkin stem. Use this as your centerpiece for the board and serve warm.

Assembling your Fall Baked Brie Charcuterie Board

While your brie pumpkin is cooking, you should prepare the rest of your board. I actually assembled the rest of the board so that when the bake brie pumpkin was done, I could just set it in the board and serve when the brie was still warm.

Place any other large items on the board first (like bowls or decorations). Build the board around these items by laying the ingredients out in rows of groups. Break up the types of food, colors and textures. Use the grapes and sage leaves to balance out the board and add interest.

Presenting and Serving the Brie Cheese Charcuterie

Serve your pumpkin baked brie board immediately while the brie is still warm. Since people will be carving or scooping the cheese out of the brie, make sure you have a knife and other serving utentils and napkins available.

If you are serving this board at someone elses home or can’t serve immediately, you can microwave the brie to reheat it quickly.
