Baked Brie in puff pastry

Baked brie is one of the most enjoyable appetizer during the holiday season. Brie stuffed with raspberry preserve, pecans for a crunch factor then wrapped in a puff pastry. So delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 wheel of Brie cheese. 8-12 oz
  • 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 center of the sheet.
  • Slice the Brie in half. Spread the raspberry preserve then top with chopped pecans.
  • Place the other half on top then fold the pastry around to completely cover the cheese brushing between folds.
  • Spray an oven safe pan/baking sheet with oil, then place the wrapped brie in.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until the buff is golden brown.
  • Let it cool down for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • To make it easier to cut the brie it is better to freeze it for 20 to 30 minutes to firm up a bit.
  • In my opinion the more preserve the better so do not hold back if this is your thing too.
  • To keep the brie from leaking you need to brush each fold you make with the pastry dough with egg, egg acts as glue for your pastry dough.
  • Spraying your pan or baking dish with oil -and even lining it up with a  foil then spraying it with oil- before putting the brie down helps reduce residue on the pan.
  • I highly advise you to let it cool for almost 10 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.
  • Make ahead tip: Prepare this dish then refrigerate for up to one day. Bake right before serving.
