Ingredients

  • 1 wheel of Brie cheese. 8oz
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry 1/2 a package.
  • 6-8 oz raspberry preserve more or less depending on your liking.
  • 1 cup chopped pecan.
  • 1 egg.

Instructions

  • Place the Brie in the freezer while you take out the puff pastry to thaw, takes about 30 minutes.*
  • Preheat oven to 400 degree.
  • Roll the puff pastry, Place the cheese on top in the middle of the sheet.
  • Slice the Brie in half. Spread the raspberry preserve then top with chopped pecan.
  • Place the other half on top then fold the pastry around to completely cover the cheese.**
  • Spray an oven safe pan with oil, and place the puff pastry with the brie inside.**
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until the buff is golden brown.
  • Serve with some crackers and ... ENjoy. ****

Notes

* I place the Brie in the freezer just to firm up not to be completely frozen. This way it is easier to slice in half.
** It is extremely important to brush each fold of the puff pastry with egg to seal the cheese inside and prevent it from leaking to your oven pan.
*** You might as well line your pan with foil then spray the foil.
**** I highly advise you to let it cool for a 10 to 15 minutes before serving it. This gives the melted cheese just a little time to firm up — it will still be gooey and scoop-able, but no longer molten lava burning mouths.
