Baked Brie

A couple of weeks ago a few girls from school were coming over for some wine and cheese.  I had some brie in the fridge so I decided to whip this up real quick.  I figured, Who doesn’t love ooey gooey cheese? This was my first time doing anything special with brie and I have to say… I’m in love.

It’s so quick and easy and I promise your guests will love it. I got the recipe idea from simplyrecipes.com.  Unfortunately I wasn’t able to snag an “after” pic.  I think we all got a little excited and started digging in right away!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 large sheet of puff pastry dough or 1 tube of refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 1 round or wedge of Brie cheese (do not remove rind)
  • Raspberry Jam, or other sweet jam
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water

Instructions: 

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2 On a stick-free cookie sheet, lay out the puff pastry or the crescent rolls flat; put brie round or wedge on top.

2 Spread jam on brie, fold dough over top, cutting off excess dough

3.  Beat egg and water together.  Brush pastry with egg.

4.  Bake at 350º for 25-30 minutes, pastry should be golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

  1. I’m a sucker for baked brie. It’s so delicious with jam, too. I’ve definitely been there where we dig in/eat so fast before I can even snap a photo. We’ll forgive you. 😉 That just shows how great the dish was!

  2. How come I wasn’t invited? Not happy at all!:( I normally like to make jokes, but ooey gooey cheese deserves some credit, and I love cheese cakes. Good JOB girl!!! Hire me when you are ready to open the bakery shop next your dentist
