Baked Brie in Puff Pastry

This is one of those appetizers that seem to be too complicated to tackle until you actually try it then you realize it is simple, easy and takes little time to prepare.  You can find a multitude of these recipes in most southern cookbooks and each online recipe site will have some version, but I like to keep it simple!

Baked Brie in Puff Pastry

1 puff pastry
1 wheel of brie
1/2 cup raspberry or strawberry preserves (whichever you prefer or have on hand)
1 egg

Thaw out the puff pastry and lay flat on a clean surface.  Place the brie in the middle of the puff pastry, pour the preserves on top of the brie and fold edges of the puff pastry up to meet at the top.  Pinch the edges together to create a sealed seam.  Brush the top of the puff pastry with a lightly beaten egg (this will help it to brown and look pretty). 
Bake in the oven (seam side up) at 400 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes. 
Serve warm with crackers.

Pin It!
