Blue Ribbon Recipe

Oozy, cheesy, sweet, and tangy, these are the best ways to discuss this simple baked Brie recipe. We fell in love with the crunchy and buttery puff pastry surrounding the creamy Brie and sweet filling. This delicious appetizer will be a wonderful addition to any party.

How To Make baked brie

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Wheel of brie cut in half and topped with fruit, almonds and brown sugar.
    2
    Using a warmed sharp knife, cut the wheel of Brie in half horizontally and separate the top half from the bottom half. Sprinkle the bottom half of the Brie with the dried fruit, toasted almonds, and brown sugar. Replace the top half of the Brie and apply pressure to secure the stuffing.
  • Covering brie in puff pastry.
    3
    Working on a floured surface, roll out the puff pastry so it will fully cover the Brie. Place the Brie on the puff pastry and pull up the sides around the Brie wheel. Roll out another sheet of puff pastry and cut out a circle to cover the top of the Brie. You can use the trimmings for decorations if you wish.
  • Brushing egg wash on puff pastry.
    4
    Using a pastry brush, brush the top of the Brie with egg wash and place the puff pastry circle on top.
  • Brie on lined cookie sheet baking in oven.
    5
    Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20-30 minutes until the puff pastry is golden brown and then turn the oven down to 325 degrees. Bake for another 20 minutes.
