Preheat your oven to 350°F and get a dish that can fit the cheese wheel.
Place the cheese onto it and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until gooey in the middle.
Once the cheese is done, sprinkle with pomegranate, pecans and add a drizzle of honey.
Garnish with fresh rosemary for a holiday feeling.
Sprinkle with flaky salt and serve it with crackers if desired.
Brie: If you can't find brie cheese, you can substitute with camembert. Brie has a milder taste while camembert has a slightly deeper, more earthy taste.
Pomegranate: You can also use cranberry sauce.
Pecans: You can substitute with chopped walnuts or pistachios instead.
Rosemary: Rosemary has a strong flavor, so you don't need much. You can also use fresh thyme. Bake the cheese straight from the fridge so that it softens instead of melting completely.
Serve straight from the oven for best results.
Storage: Store by wrapping the baking dish tightly in foil. Store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.
