  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Pre heat the oven to 325 F. In a food processor, combine the pine nuts, garlic, and cheese until finely chopped.
  3. Step 3

    With the food processor running, add the olive oil. Pulse until a paste is formed, about 30 to 40 seconds. Add basil leaves. Pulse just until the basil leaves are chopped and blended into the nut paste.
  4. Step 4

    Put the wedge or round of brie in a rimmed baking dish that can also be used to serve it, or onto a cookie sheet.
  5. Step 5

    Warm the brie in the oven just until the edges are melting and bubbly, about 6 to 8 minutes. Be careful not to overheat it or the Brie will completely melt.
  6. Step 6

    Spread the pesto on top of the Brie. Extra pesto can be spooned around the brie, or placed in a separate bowl.
