  1. In small bowl, combine brown sugar, rum extract, cranberry sauce and nutmeg. Stir to blend.
  2. Scrape or cut off the top rind of the cheese, leaving 1/4-inch edge by scoring or making a circle on the top 1/4-inch from the edge with a small knife. Using a teaspoon, simply scrape off the top of the rind, exposing the cheese. Top Brie with cranberry mixture and sprinkle with pecans.
  3. Bake at 500 degrees F for 5 minutes, or until cheese is softened.
  4. Using a large spatula, place Brie round on serving plate and surround with assorted crackers.
