Baked Brie Cheese

Recipe Information

Serves/Makes:8 or more

  • 1 brie cheese round
  • 1 package frozen puff pastry sheets
  • jam (berry and apricot both work well, or try a spiced jam)
  • chopped walnuts
  • egg wash (1 egg mixed with 1 tbsp (15 ml) or so of water
  • crackers (i.e. water crackers or Pepperidge Farm assorted--wheat thins are kind of small for this)
  • Thaw one sheet of pastry.
  • Remove brie from packaging (leave white rind on).
  • Cover top with jam.
  • Cover jam with chopped nuts.
  • Wrap brie in pastry dough sealing on the underside.
  • Brush on egg wash.
  • Bake in a 350 degree (175 C.) oven until pastry is golden brown (this should allow plenty of time for cheese inside to melt--don't be surprised it some oozes out, it's o.k.).
  • Place on serving dish with knife and crackers of your choice.
