I always keep extra packages of frozen puff pastry in the freezer – it’s a staple in my kitchen. So when I’m expecting a couple of friends and I’m in a time crunch (which is usually most of the time!), this ooey-gooey warm little nosh is perfectly served with a crusty French baguette and chilled glasses of Sancerre wine.

Bon Appétit and Cheers! Love, Nora

A Baked Brie Bundle

1 sheet of Puff Pastry (I prefer Pepperidge Farm)

1 small Brie cheese

1 egg

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Thaw pastry sheet and unfold onto a Silpat covered cookie sheet.
  • With a rolling pin lightly make smooth.
  • Place Brie round in center, and just like wrapping a gift – bring sides together in the center. Do the same with the corners.
  • Pinch together on top to keep together.
  • Using a fork or whisk, lightly beat egg in a cup. Using a pastry brush, brush egg mixture onto exposed dough.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let it rest for 10-15 minutes, and serve.

Serve on a small decorative plate/platter, and simply garnish with fresh cut thyme sprigs.

    This is also good if you add Crain’s with the cheese!

  • Beautiful! I happen to have Brie and puff pastry on hand right now. Must try!

    • Great party treat. Also, try putting a layer of a sweet or savory jam, like fig or apricot, on top of the brie before you wrapit. Really tasty!

  • One of my favorites. We usually poor a speciality jelly on ours like Aunt Sally’s. My mouth is watering thinking about it.
