Brie Baked In Puff Pastry
Puff pastry – if using frozen puff pastry you will need 1 sheet, thawed
4 oz. wedges of Brie with rind removed
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup butter
3 T honey
1 1/2 t. minced garlic
2 T chopped walnuts
1 T chopped fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll out puff pastry sheet on lightly floured surface to form a 12″ square. Cut diagonally thru pastry sheet to form 2 triangles. Place Brie wedge in center of one triangle, with tip of cheese facing toward 90-degree angle of triangle. (Keep the other piece for your next baked brie…which might well be immediately 🙂 ) Pull up and fold puff pastry loosely to enclose cheese. Pinch edges to seal.
Transfer pastry wrapped sheet, seam side up, to baking sheet. Brush pastry with egg glaze. (Can be prepared 6 hrs. ahead, covered and refrigerated.) Bake until Brie is golden, about 18 minutes.
Meanwhile combine, butter, honey and garlic in saucepan over low heat. Place brie on serving plate. Drizzle cheese with sauce along with walnuts & parsley. Serve with crackers or baguette slices.
This is also delicious served with apples or pears.
