Spread out puffed pastry on a flat surface.
You can slide the parchment paper holding the baked brie slowly onto a nearby serving tray. Put it in the middle of a large serving tray giving room to surround it with apple slices, pear slices, red seedless grapes,crackers, and pecans. When cooled you can trim the parchment paper closer to the brie.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Melt butter and pour into a baking pan. A pan large enough so pecans lay in single file. Roast about 20 minutes, gently stirring every 5 minutes and checking for doneness after 10 minutes.
Mix 1/4 tsp of salt and 1/8 tsp cinnamon together in small dish. Rub around to mix, then sprinkle mixture over pecans. COOL.
Arange these items around brie with crackers and toasted pecans.
