Oh wow. Y’all, I love baked brie. And this recipe really isn’t f’ing around. Like holy moly.
I made this dish a few weeks ago before my company’s holiday party. Coworkers gathered at my house for a little nosh, some boozin’, and general reveling in the Christmas spirit. I enjoy making baked brie for these sorts of events because (1) you always know that it’ll be a crowd pleaser and (2) baked brie is just so easy to make. Keep reading for the full recipe.
- 1 sheet of puff pastry dough
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1/2 apple, thinly sliced (I used a Honeycrisp apple)
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
- 1 eight-ounce round of Brie cheese
- 1 egg, beaten
Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C) and grease a baking sheet. Roll out the puff pastry dough until thin (should be at least 4x the size of the round of Brie).
In the center of the rolled-out puff pastry dough, place the brown sugar followed by the apple slices (spread them out like a fan). Drizzle the honey on top of the apples before placing the round of Brie on top of the mound of ingredients. Fold the puff pastry dough to enclose the Brie, pressing to seal the dough completely. Place the Brie, apples-side-up, on the baking sheet. Sprinkle a dusting of cinnamon on top of the puff pastry and then brush the puff pastry with the beaten egg.
Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving. I recommend serving with thicker crackers and apple slices! Enjoy!
