One of my absolute favorite appetizers of all time is baked brie, it is SO easy, gooey and drool worthy. It is perfect as it is, but baking it inside a pumpkin takes this recipe to a whole new level! The hot & spicy honey makes it perfectly seasonal.

I love serving this to guests because it is easy to assemble ahead, and bake right before serving.

Recipe Tip

  • Remove as much of the pumpkin insides as you can, this way it won’t be watery.
  • Save the seeds for roasting and the pumpkin meat for pumpkin butter!
  • After baking the pumpkin, make sure you pat dry it as much as you can to avoid it being watery.
