About this Recipe

Add this crowd pleasing appetizer to your holiday menu stat. Golden brown puff pastry wrapped around melted brie? Yes please! This recipe, commonly referred to as Brie en Croute comes together by wrapping brie cheese with store-bought puff pastry. We love to add red pepper jam, honey, caramelized onions, and even cranberry sauce onto the brie before baking for a sweet and savory spin. If you want to make a smaller portion simply use a smaller wheel of brie, cut the puff pastry down, and bake until golden brown. Serve while warm with your favorite rustic crackers or bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet store-bought puff pastry, thawed
  • all-purpose flour for dusting
  • 1 wheel brie, 8-12 ounces
  • ¼ cup jam, honey, caramelized onions, or cranberry sauce (optional)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten, see recipe note below (optional)

  1. 1

    Prep puff pastry & brie

    • On lightly floured surface, roll out puff pastry to square, roughly 11-12”.
    • Transfer puff pastry to Brava metal tray.
    • Place the brie in the center of the puff pastry. Top brie with jam or honey, if using.

  2. 2

    Wrap brie in puff pastry & brush with egg

    • Fold puff pastry up over sides of brie and gently press the edges of the puff pastry against the brie as needed to secure it.
    • Brush top of wrapped brie with egg if desired - this will create a glossy sheen and create more even browning when baking.
